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!
What is on your character’s grocery receipt? What does this say about him? Take it a step further and compare what's on your character's grocery list to what she actually buys.
Ramp it up!
Think of a time when you ignored or were indifferent to someone. Put yourself in that person’s place. Write how she might think or feel.
Burn it up!
Exercise 3: from Writer’s Digest
Only two weeks into the New Year had passed and Tim had already broken his first resolution: Don't kill anyone. Write this scene.
Every Wednesday I post prompts and exercises for your “writing workout” so keep checking back! Happy writing!!!
