The theme for February's Writing Lab is PASSION. If you're participating in the Writing Lab in February -- 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!)
