The theme for May's NaBloPoMo is PHOTO, and this month only, you're getting two prompts for the price of one. You're getting a writing prompt, but you're also getting a photo prompt in case you want to go the visual route.
If you're participating in NaBloPoMo in May -- or even if you're not! -- here are some prompts to get you going. Writing prompts are posted at the beginning of the month so you can plan ahead, Monday to Friday. (Weekends are for free-writing though we've included a photo prompt those days!)
