Building and flexing those writing muscles
Yes! This is something that I fail to do. I never make time for writing. And I should. I mean, yes, I sometimes count working on my blog as writing...but I don't make enough time for creative writing. Further more, when I do make the time sometimes I don't want to work on my WIP. Sometimes I just want to write something new, but I don't have any ideas.
If this problem plagues you as it plagues me I have found the cure. Writing prompts. Just google writing prompts and you'll get a plethora of links. Here's one that I liked: Creative Writing Prompts from Warren Wilson College.
And below is a prompt from my weekly Writer's Digest e-mail.
You’ve just moved into a new house and are fixing it up. In the process of painting you find an odd crack in the wall. As you explore further, you find out it’s a secret passageway—and you have no idea where it leads. You decide to grab a flashlight and go exploring.
So here's my challenge: by the next post we will all have written a response to ONE of these prompts. If you want to include what you've written in the comments space below feel free!
