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!
In 25 words or fewer, write an opening sentence–just one–to a story incorporating the following words in any way you imagine: fireworks, rolling pin, spirit.
Ramp it up!
You wake up after a hard-partying night ringing in the year 2013. But when you look out the window, it’s definitely not 2013. What year (past or future) is it and what do you see? How did this happen? What happens next?
Burn it up!
Write a holiday (any holiday) story based on a simple white lie that begins to spin out of control.
Cool it down.
List the top three experiences of your character’s life so far. How do those past moments effect your current story?
Every Wednesday I post prompts and exercises for your “writing workout” so keep checking back! Happy writing!!!
