On the weekends, prompts keep my creativity warmed up so I don’t “pull a muscle” on Monday morning. During the week, prompts jump-start my writing routine. Consider using your own characters and settings for these prompts. You might come up with dazzling new ideas for your WiP! All you’ll need for these exercises is your writing materials and an open mind. Remember to drink lots of water and stretch!
Start it up!
Write a scene in which your character is mistaken for someone else by a stranger.
Ramp it up!
Write a story from the perspective of a woodland animal during a snowstorm. Too cliché for you? Try it from the POV of a tree or an abandoned cottage.
Burn it up!
Consider this past holiday season: What was the weirdest gift you received? What was the worst thing you ate? What was the most embarrassing thing that happened, to you or someone else? What was your favorite surprise? Who did you avoid being around? Who avoided being around you? Who were you most looking forward to being with? Write a story incorporating all of these things.
Every Wednesday I post prompts and exercises for your “writing workout” so keep checking back! Happy writing!!!
