Sorry it’s a little late, but I’ve managed to put the November writing prompts together. (I’ve added a few extra days to compensate!) Here we are, near the end of the year. 2022 was an awful one for me to say the least. I suffered a spontaneous bilateral patellar tendon rupture that left me bed […]

October 2022 Writing Prompts for People with Chronic Illnesses & Disabilities

I haven’t hosted one of these in a good while for many reasons. My usable time has shrunk a lot due to chronic pain, commitments and various new activities. In any case, I felt that it would be a good idea to host these linkups every once in a while. If only to catch up […]
