From The Huffington Post:

The online literary community Figment, have launched Figment Daily Themes, a free email service designed to help subscribers get into the habit of writing a little bit every day.

Each weekday morning, participants receive a carefully crafted writing prompt focused on a different element of craft, including character, setting, dialogue, essay, verse, and more. For added inspiration, acclaimed authors offer occasional prompts—upcoming contributors will apparently include Judy Blume, Kurt Anderson, Jeanette Winterson, Susan Orlean, Dana Goodyear, and Nathan Englander.

We asked them to put together some of their favorite writing prompts, including a few from some famous names, to help inspire our readers.

To sign up for the daily emails, visit Figment.com.

Check out the prompts below and feel free to share  your results in the comments!
