Ok, I have to get my students writing. I am utilizing Tumblr to find interesting writing prompts.  Here are a few examples of dialogue prompts and the creative and fantastic writing that emerged!!!

Thank you Tumblr Prompt Blogs (hourlywritingpromptscreativepromptsforwriting,


P1   “I am calm. I am nothing but calm all the time.” 

P2   “No you’re not! You’re 15 seconds away from starting a fight at anytime.”

P1   “I’m cool. I’m just irritated.”

P2   “You can’t let someone get you to that point.”

P1   “I’m just annoyed at how many people were in line and all the confusion up front.”

P2   “You’re right. It was packed and it was too much going on.”

P1   “I’m not coming to this store no more after today.”

P2   “Yep, you ready to get something to eat?”

P2   “Yea, I want some carry out.”

I am a writer, photographer, and swim instructor/coach. Yeah, I do a lot of stuff! I was lucky enough to grow up in both Puerto Rico and New York. I am obsessed with Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery in Viejo San Juan. It is located below El Castillo de San Felipe del Morro. I have multiple degrees from Utica College, Syracuse University, Old Dominion University, and Washington Institute of Natural Medicine. I was able to study photography at the Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute in Utica, NY and study writing at the Women's Writers Center in Cazenovia, NY.
