Prompts, anyone?

I keep forgetting about prompts. I had these typed up and was meaning to add them but it just slipped out of my head. Sorry.

Anyway, if you are just plain stuck and need something to jump-start your thinky parts, here are few prompts to get the gray matter in your skull sloshing.

  • You wake up to find that you are a cat. What do you do? (Alternatively, choose whichever inanimate object or animal you want.)
  • The clock on your wall is still ticking despite the fact itโ€™s out of batteries. Is it a poltergeist? Are you in a haunted house? Is it just faulty wiring?
  • Write a poem that is one sentence long, but challenge yourself to make it as long as possible without losing any meaning.

I don’t half fancy the cat one, myself. I might do that one of these days. ๐Ÿ˜‰

WTT: Read

It’s Writing Tip Tuesday. Today’s installment is about reading. You’ve heard the old adage: read. Well, it’s true:

Read. Read everything you can. The more you read the better you write.

When you read, you open your mind to new worlds, new people and new experiences. Not only is it fun, it gets your creative juices flowing and encourages you to come up with new ideas. So get out there and read!
