Hello, fabulous readers and writers! I hope you’re doing well! It’s been kind of crazy here! The most important thing is: I have big news! I spent the last few months curating a series of writing prompts I’ve created and collected since 2013. I’m so excited to let you know about my latest project: DarWrites: Writing Prompts, which is now available!
I’ve spent the last few months working on two projects, one which is still in edits, and this project which is dear to my heart. I’ve been told one of the best things I do is inspire writers – and I hope you find this inspiring!
Have you ever sat down to write, but hours later found yourself still staring at the blank page? Have you ever thought, “if only I could get started, I could write my novel?” Well, my friend, this prompt book is for you!
I’m Darlene Reilley, an author, teacher, and writing coach. At the DarWrites blog, I create content to empower, entertain, and inspire writers just like you. DarWrites: Writing Prompts helps you get past the blank page jitters! Inside you will find 1,001 unique writing prompts I’ve created over the past five years. Join in the writing fun and see where your energy can take you!
You can get DarWrites: Writing Prompts Book 1 in the Kindle Version.
What I’m Working on Now
The Divantinum Project is the first science fiction romance in a trilogy featuring an amnesiac half-goddess/half-Altarian who holds the key to saving the human race from the invaders known as the Skitádi. Can Erica harness the power of the light and defeat Earth’s enemies?
The Anthropology and Archaeology Workbook for Writers. This manual for writers is based on my popular anthropology and archaeology workshop and will help you apply anthropology and archaeology to fiction. The book is based on the workshop I gave at FF&P in May 2017.
This project is created for the retired and active soldiers and other people who have PTSD. It is a choose-your-own-adventure journal meant to help them reengage and reconnect with their lives upon returning home. It also is a jump-start to step closer to the things they love that give them purpose. Many studies say that expressive writing helps people who have experience traumatic situations. This is one way we can help people in their dark times – and bring a little light in their worlds.

Thank you so much for coming on this journey with me! I enjoy talking with you and writing along with you!
DarWrites will be back to a normal schedule beginning in June. After I figure out where I’m living. That’s right- there was a huge move from Washington state back to Utah! I lived here when I was just out of school – and then again a few years later. Now I’m back and looking to connect! If you are in the beehive state, or if you know of a few cool writers in the area, please let me know!
