Hey readers! Today, I soft-launched an eBook for my Make Art Not War Challenge. Watch for more formats compatible with your Kindle and Nook coming soon! The eBook will be available in more stores as well. The nice thing about DriveThruFiction, is that you will have permanent access to the file and be automatically updated when new file formats are added. Sweet! Enjoy! And, more importantly, don't forget to make art! http://www.drivethrufiction.com/product/222761/Make-Art-Not-War-Challenge-Rules-Essays-and-31-Creative-Prompts

Creative types, we need to make national holiday to celebrate those who support us. What do we call it? And, what day should it be?

I sat down with Greg Tito and Shelly Mazzanoble to talk about adventure writing in yesterday's Dragon Talk podcast. Inspired, I developed a D&D-influenced creative prompt to concoct an adventure or a story, too.

“Shelly Mazzanoble and Greg Tito speak to Monica Valentinelli, a prolific creative writer with heavy involvement in all forms of D&D from adventure writing to running and playing games with new players. In Lore You Should Know – Matt Sernett and Chris Perkins jump into the Yawning Portal.”

Today marks the first check-in for my #makeartnotwar2017 challenge. In this post, I tell you how I"m doing, offer some tips on sticking with it, and dive into my thoughts on making art as an act of protest. I also provide two creative prompts as well.
