    It’s January 6th, which means you may be getting close to forsaking all your ambitious new year’s resolutions. If, though, you resolved to write more during this cursed (leap) year, Rebecca Makkai is here to help, in a delightful and slightly bonkers way.

    Using the hashtag #366prompts, Makkai is tweeting out one “strangely specific” writing prompt a day. The first prompt was a straightforward (and wild) premise…

    The fourth was more activity-based.

    Today’s introduced us to Jarvis, who is up to something.

    We regret to inform you that all other 2020 Twitter is cancelled until further notice.
