Top 10 Best Posts of Creo Somnium


These are the ten bests posts I like on this blog, though not necessarily the ones looked at most often. They are in no particular order.

It is meant to create new connections and an environment of a appreciation for the experience and skill of other writers around us.

And here at Creo Somnium, we love creation. 🙂

The rules of the Liebster Award are as follows:

Inspiration Engine 12 – Prompts

This is a weekly post I do to highlight blogs or bloggers who have inspired me in some way during this week – another car on my imagination train!
