Yesterday was International Senior Citizens' Day, folks. Wisdom may be variable, but you've still got to give props to the people who've made more trips around the sun then you. Give Mom and Dad a call--or Grandmom and Granddad, if you don't want to offend Mom and Dad--and take the time to ponder wisdom with this set of microprompts.
Phantasmagorium may have a Prompt Cellar, but the there are plenty of good writing holes around the Internet. So here's a cellar of other peoples' prompt cellars.

To ease you out of writing withdrawal, or to keep you in the writing habit, here are seven microprompts for the ups and downs of great adventures! Use them however you like.

I had my next set of prompts scheduled in the next few days, but Google helpfully informed me that today is the anniversary of the moon landing. If that doesn't say inspiration, I don't know what does.
Normally I only put out a couple of microprompt sets a month, but tonight's a special occasion: I've officially roped fifty of you into following me! Welcome to the Hotel California.
