May is a wonderful month. It brings Mother’s Day, the end of April showers and a variety of reading and writing awareness opportunities!

This coming month is not only “Get Caught Reading Month” and the American “National Short Story Month” but also home to the Story-a-Day Challenge. Sort of like National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) for those of us with shorter attention spans, “Story-a-Day May” challenges its participants to write and finish a short story (any length) every day this month.

To help give you a head start, we are releasing thirty-one creative writing prompts on the Paperblanks Journal Prompts App! If you don’t have it downloaded yet, it’s a super simple and easy-to-use app that gets you started in a new journalling direction when you’re having trouble thinking of a new topic.
