Thorncraft Publishing is the home of great stories, the ones that make you think more about the world where you live, the ones that cause you to reflect on our history, that inspire you with powerful characters and settings, the ones that call you to change your life, and that encourage us to continue telling our stories.
We publish the work of women authors in fiction. We also publish the yoga book series, BreatheYourOMBalance® which features poetry, nonfiction, and fiction by all genders. At Thorncraft Publishing, we're trying to create a positive impact and promote positive changes within our community, so we publish the community brochure, The Clarksville/Montgomery County African American Legacy Trail. We've organized many literary events in books, theatre, and more.

Samantha Summers enjoys traveling, jeeping, and walking on the beach, but yoga is her passion. She especially loves the tranquility and challenge of practicing on the water, and the paddleboard has quickly become her favorite weekend mat.

Each week, we will feature a new contributor to BreatheYourOMBalance®: Yoga and Relationships, Volume 3 of our yoga book. Volume three is introduced by Sarah Michelle, and she is joined by people of all genders for a compilation of nonfiction, fiction, and poetry that explores how our yoga practice changes and challenges, supports and heals our relationships.
Each week, we'll give you a new writing prompt here on our home page. Our past writing prompts, over 100 of them, are located at The Nudge. They'll be catalogued from the home page to The Nudge page every week but will not contain our special edition prompts. You can sign up to receive special writing prompts in our newsletter below.
Artistic Inspiration: A Question from a Child
The child's question allows you to explore many different directions in a narrative. A question from a child can cause adults to see a new perspective, especially since children seem to ask questions "out of the blue." A child's question could lead unknowingly to an internal dilemma for the adult or some type of existential crisis. The question might prompt an investigation to find out the answer, leading to a unexpected and fun experience, maybe even a quest.
Toddlers can sometimes ask questions until adults become aggravated or even angry, so adding questions to your narrative could create a simple way to display and make way for emotions that then allow you to delve into other parts of the characters' psyches.
The responses to a child's questions can be fun, entertaining, baffling, confusing, disturbing, dismissive, and so much more. Try different responses to the same question as a way of practicing your craft of characterization.
