Often times, we feel a need to write, but have NO earthly idea where we want to go or what to even write! That's why writing prompts are such fabulous tools. They train your mind and help you to make something out of almost nothing. If you force yourself to work with prompts you don't necessarily like... You will expand your mind and learn ways to make plots and characters and intricacies in your novels work! It's a great exercise.
I like to think of it like this... Writing is a muscle. If you exercise it, it will get stronger. But you have to commit to doing it. Every. Single. Day.
"But how do you do that if you don't know what to write about?" You wonder.
Here's a fun fact! I love to come up with writing prompts. Actually, I have several journals full of random little prompts and blips and things that I may never use for myself...
But YOU can use them!
So here's what you do. Scroll down to the bottom of this page and sign yourself up for my daily writing prompt emails below.
Everyday, you will receive a fun and original writing prompt via email.
And all you have to do from there is write.
It doesn't matter how long, short, good, bad, ugly, beautiful, brilliant, or stupid it is. Just write it.
In that email, you will also find that I have link for you. :) It's only available to those signed up. A place where you can go to share your responses to these prompts in a google doc I have created only for that purpose.
Myself and all the other writers who use it can see what you add, but don't be intimidated! This is meant to be a friendly place for constructive criticism and encouragement. Even if you don't share, it's fun to read through everyone else's ideas!
Feel free to share!
SO... What are you waiting for? Stop procrastinating and get writing TODAY! :D
