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!
Author R.L. Stine’s first job after college was writing fake celebrity interviews for fan magazines. Imagine you get to interview either your favorite or your least favorite celebrity. How might that interview go? Write it!
Ramp it up!
Write about a lie you have told, big or small. Did you ’fess up or do you still have yet to do so? Were you caught in the lie? What were the consequences? (Can you work this into your current wip somehow?)
Burn it up!
Exercise 3: from Writer’s Digest
A close friend asks you to help him kill his wife and, to his surprise, you agree without hesitation–not because you particularly dislike his wife, but because she's the only person who knows this one deep, dark secret that could ruin your life forever. Write about how you confront her and how the murder plays out.
Every Wednesday I post prompts and exercises for your “writing workout” so keep checking back! Happy writing!!!
