Use These Writing Prompts (& Get Feedback on Your Writing)

As the first month of 2012 winds down, so does the fight to stay strong in keeping up with New Year's resolutions.

(Even falling off a figurative horse hurts our writing career in the long run.) So with month two creeping up on us, I'd like to offer up some writing prompt exercises to rekindle your creative spirit.
