Every writer creates her own writing habits. One part of your habit should include using writing prompts. Why, you ask? You like using prompts about as much as eating spinach? Well, I happen to love spinach, but that's a different topic. Prompts, whether appealing or not, serve a real purpose and have value to you as a writer.
Here a few good reasons why you should use prompts in your writing.
Writing prompts make us look at our writing, our lives, and our world and question what we say, think, and write about. Writing prompts encourage us to look at the why behind those answers. ANd of course, Why? and What If? are two of the most powerful and inspirational questions a writer can ask--and answer.
As the Writer Success Coach, I transform writers into authors. Have you written a book or are about to? Unsure of where to start or what to do next? Do you have questions about the process of writing and publishing? Then your next step is to talk to me (Book a Free Consultation) or perhaps to join the Book Writer Success Boot Camp and learn everything you need to know to get that book ready to publish.
Today's blog is a combination of Video (Vlog) and written content. I hope you enjoy both!
CaZ here, the Writer Success Coach. Who wants to have some fun? I’d like to share an activity with you that we do in my Free Facebook group, The Writer Exchange. It’s really simple and fun, even if you are not a writer. It fuels your imagination and that’s always a good thing!
It works like this. I have 5 prompts that I’ve prepared. Simple, declarative sentences that you may choose to finish. In any way you want. Be outrageous. Be funny. Be sad. Relax and have fun with your imagination.
Choose one or all. Write your response in the comments if you want to share. Or copy and paste the prompt and write a response for yourself elsewhere.
Ready? Here’s the first one!
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
