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 if you had an extra limb? What would it be and what would you do with it? (I’d want an extra arm so I could learn to French braid my own hair!)
Ramp it up!
How would the character in your wip answer this question from a child: “Where do babies come from?”
Burn it up!
Make a list of ten of the most ordinary things you can think of. Now use them in a story, scene, or chapter.
Every Wednesday I post prompts and exercises for your “writing workout” so keep checking back! Happy writing!!!
