What am I going to write about today? Like you, everyone asks this question, both the expert writers and rookie, some even have a name for it, do you want to take a guess? Well, it’s called writer’s block.
To answer the question of what we will be writing about, we will be using WordPress Writing Prompts book, and as such, everything we will be writing about daily, will be from this book – but you don’t have to download it.
