birds in a barrel's mission is to release creative nonfiction into the wild.

40 Days & 40 Writes is its first project.



Thank you again for coming along on the 40 Days & 40 Writes journey. I'll be in touch in the next few days to deliver your 40 Days book. I'm also going to hit you up for your thoughts on how to grow and improve this experience in a little survey on Sunday. 

And, as promised, here are your contributed writing prompts that I will most certainly steal and adapt in the future:

  • The Big Dream.
  • Worth it?
  • Saved.
  • Spurred into action.
  • Ambiguous.
  • Awestruck.
  • Letting go.
  • Taking flight.
  • Who won the fight?
  • Dentist or Doctor.
  • Santa and the Tooth Fairy.
  • Monster under the bed.
  • Flat on your face.
  • Stage fright / hamming it up.  
  • Physically present, emotionally absent.
  • What I wish I’d said.
  • The holidays.

Meantime, if you think of anyone who would enjoy 40 Days & 40 Writes Spring 2018, maybe tell them to join the interest list on the web site. 

So... how did it go?

The Final Four!
