I was looking around online and came across a place where you can exercise you mind with prompts. Writing in response to prompts is a good way to clear out the cobwebs and get your creative juices flowing. Try looking at these links to get something cooking!

well hang in there Vicar, when you finally have that rewritten it would be awesome to have a "sneak peek" at the works! I just might be chatting with the next pulitzer prize winner! (don't mind the spelling, my brain is on overload tonight! lol) Take care and have fun! SheMatrix

Thank you for the suggestions. I have made a note of them. Sometimes when my creative juices have stopped, I just take pen and pad out to nature I usually get inspired by the beauty that surrounds me. I had joined a creative writing group online and I printed out the lessons. Any time I am stuck, I get out a prompt from one of the lessons and just let my pen go with the flow. I don't know if Julie still has the group going or not but I could find out if anyone is interested.
