This account and subreddit began when I found myself so busy adulting that I had no time left to do pretty much anything I wanted. I was working two jobs and attending classes, and I started to realize I was feeling creative backup. I felt literally terrible that I couldn’t write anymore. So I started using my 15 minute break at the office to try to put a narrative together over at r/WritingPrompts. I’m self employed now, and take more time on my prompts. Stick around a while!
