At first my intention was to write this as a side note in my “Games I’ve Played in July” post but then it started to become too big and I realized I should have wrote an actual post about it from the beginning.
There is a new blog event this month, called Promptapalooza, created by Belghast. You can find the details here. The TL,DR version is: there will be a writing prompt each day and someone will write about it then link to the next person who will write about a different prompt in the next day. It is kinda like a huge blog crawl during the month of August.
It is an special event to replace the traditional Blaugust this year since, by request of the community, it was done in April to help lift people’s spirits during the pandemic. Still people wanted some kind of event in August and again, Belghast was kind enough to come up with an event for the community.

I am not participating in any official capacity because once again I am not in the best of mental states to participate in anything more social. But I still want to give a shout out to the event and might even write a blog post based on a prompt assuming it is okay to do so.
Anyway, for anyone interested please give it a look as you might find a cool new blog to read or even just some food for thought.

I am sure I am missing some people in this list and for that I apologize. Also, just to make it clear, this post isn’t intended to be an index of all the posts made for Promptapalooza. I have absolutely no intention of updating it after today.
It is just that I thought giving some samples of what content has been made so far would be a good idea. Also it is kind of my way to apologize for not making this post earlier.
