I joined this writer’s group on Facebook called Ninja Writers. The ninja genius behind the group, Shaunta, shares lots of writing advice and prompts and invites members to share samples of their writing and get feedback from one another.

I haven’t done an Instagram challenge in awhile but I really enjoyed the last one I did. The creative push to take more pictures and to figure out how to accommodate each day’s prompt is a great way to get your creative juices flowing.
