Writing Prompt #26

I never know what to do for writing prompt intros. Do I talk about the world? About me? About writing? I guess it’s a reminder that the blank page can always be intimidating. If you’re a writer and you’ve never sat in front of blank page feeling your palms get sweaty and you mind go blank, then I refuse to believe you are human. What is your superpower? Please share your secrets.

The blank page problem is one reason why I like writing prompts so much. The prompt and the time limit don’t give me a chance to procrastinate and feel intimidated. You press go on the timer and out comes a beautiful cascade of word vomit. And any words are better than no words, right?

Name of the game: Snap Shot

The rules: Stare at the picture. What does it make you think of? What story is it telling? Okay–thought of something? Good. Now set a timer to 10 minutes and start writing that story. Ready, set, go!

NaNoWriMo Day 8

Writing can be exhausting–putting word after word down and continuously checking your word count in the hope that it will magically jump up a couple hundred.

Maybe time for some adrenaline?

What makes your character’s heart beat faster? Do they love it or hate it? Will they take the leap of faith anyway?

NaNoWriMo Day 5

Just a simple image for today’s prompt. I love the mottled effect of the water damage and mould. Are you writing a dystopian novel like me, where this is a common sight? Or did your protagonist stumble out of their ordinary lives and end up in an abandoned building in the woods?

Have fun!
