Each week, we issue a writing prompt to our own staff, guest contributors, and readers like you. We welcome guest submissions, so if you’re interested in being featured or regularly contributing to the site, email your responses to kelaine.conochan [at]

You’ve got a job, a family, friends, chores, and full inbox. So many obligations pull us from one moment to the next that we barely even get the chance to stop and take a breath. But that all stops now. Because this week, we’re making room for “Me Time.”

Doing the things you want to do, when and how you want to do them. Because ultimately it’s your life, no matter how many others stake a claim to your time and energy. Not this time, y’all.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: ME TIME

If you’ve got some inspired ideas about this week’s prompt, send us your submission of 400-700 words. Write us anything that comes to mind when you think of ME TIME. It can be a personal essay, a poem, short story, script, or anything else original and fresh. Just make it worth our while and we’ll publish it, include it in our newsletter, and give you the chance to join the creative, talented staff writers here at The Prompt.

Email your responses to by Sunday, September 15th at midnight EST.
