Writing Prompts

I’ve mentioned before I love writing prompts.  they are a great way to loosen up the mind and get ready for writing. I prefer to have them without the expectation of using them for a future writing project. It gives me more freedom.

What makes a good writing prompt?

  •  open ended- this gives the writer freedom to take the exercise where ever he needs to.
  • short- we don’t need too much information.  A prompt should be a glimpse, just enough to cause a spark
  • visual- photos are my favorite prompts.  They express a range of emotions and possibilities, from just one photo

Monday Mind Prompt.

I need a better name than that! On Monday’s I will have a writing prompt. Something to help ease us back into the work week and loosen up the writing muscles. Most will probably be photos.  I’m very visual and love taking pictures. I’m also an art quilter, so I have massive amounts of photos. Feel free to leave a comment about the prompt or if you use it, let me know how it went.
