Toasted Cheese's writing calendar challenges visitors to write a story using the "five words joint, cracks, unpopular, boiling, [and] looking," or compose a piece "about losing track of the day of the week." Launched in 2001, Toasted Cheese is part literary journal, part writing community. The site offers a variety of resources, from creative inspiration to writing contests. The site also curates a monthly writing prompt calendar, which provides daily inspiration to hone writing skills or ease writer's block. Some prompts invite readers to create literature about a certain topic or event, while others challenge visitors to use specific words or phrases. The calendar also keeps track of other Toasted Cheese events such as their online writing community get-togethers and journal submission deadlines. A new calendar is released each month and readers can access past writing prompts by scrolling to the bottom of the Calendar page and changing the month selection, or via the Daily Writing Prompts tab on the Exercises page. The Calendar page also has a Selection Box section (accessible under the Calendar dropdown) where users can suggest an idea for an upcoming prompt.
