7 OF MY FAVOURITE WRITING PROMPTS
Sometimes your natural flow of ideas begins to stagnate. At times like this I like to use creativity stimulants. My favourite of these is to find different writing prompts from around the web. One of my favourite stories I’ve written was started by a prompt given by my wife, “Ocean”. Sometimes a single sentence, or even a single word can inspire a whole story.
When writing a novel it’s important to just write. Keep writing, keep the story progressing, you may have to delete whole pages when you read it back, but if you don’t just keep writing then you’ll never finish. For short stories it’s a little more difficult than that, you may only have 3000 words, or less, to write a story so you need that inspiration from the beginning.
Here are some of my favourite writing prompts, I haven’t used all of them but these are the prompts that when I read them my brain immediately flooded with ideas.
