Writing and illustration prompts for fuzzy brains and fuzzy days

It's hard to stay creative on fuzzy days, even when doing or making something will make you feel a little more sane. That's why I love prompts! I use them to inspire a story concept, start the text of a story, or try to build a scene around them.

If you're feeling a little fuzzy, here are a few prompts to help get ya scribbling again, either at words or at images.

Just keep scribbling. xo
