Daily, genre-inspired writing prompts for authors, teachers, and journaling

Journaling + Fiction – Leap Day

“Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn’t blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won’t cheat, then you know he never will. Integrity is not a search for the rewards of integrity. Maybe all you ever get for it is the largest kick in the ass the world can provide. It is not supposed to be a productive asset.”
John Dann MacDonald

Journal prompt: Spend at least 20 minutes writing about a moment when you realized cheating isn’t worth the victory it delivers.
