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 about a character born on February 29. How has this once-every-four-years date effected his birthday celebrations? His life? Was she teased as a child for being only “two” when it’s her 8th birthday?
Ramp it up!
What if, instead of you, your best friend or sibling was married to your current spouse/lover? Write it.
Burn it up!
Exercise 3: from Writer’s Digest
Needing to get something off your chest, you head to the confessional at church. After laying out your misdeed to the priest, you are given an unusual task to perform as penance–not creepy, just unusual. Write this scene.
Every Wednesday I post prompts and exercises for your “writing workout” so keep checking back! Happy Leap Day and Happy writing!!!
