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!
Check out the headlines in today’s newspaper or your favorite internet news source and choose one. Without reading the article, write your own story of what happened based only on the clues the headline gives.
Ramp it up!
When was the last time a stranger was unexpectedly kind to you? Write a story that opens with this act of kindness.
Burn it up!
Imagine your character’s car: the make, model, year, color, and cleanliness (inside and out). What does this say about your character?
Every Wednesday I post prompts and exercises for your “writing workout” so keep checking back! Happy writing!!!
