July Writing Prompts



Here are the new writing prompts for July.  I hope you’ll enjoy these as much as I enjoyed coming up with them.  Have a great month of writing everyone!  ~M xo

And, if you’re new to the idea of writing with the help of prompts, here’s what I like to do with them…

To begin, settle into your favorite place in the house with a hot drink to warm your waking bones.  Once you’ve warmed up a bit; grab your journal, a trusty pen, and a timer.  Then, set your timer for ten minutes and begin writing about one of the prompts listed below.  Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, neatness, or anything like that; just write!  Write about anything and everything that comes to your mind, and don’t stop until the ten minutes are up.

I often find myself writing short stories or poems during those ten minutes, but you can write about anything you like.  And don’t be alarmed if what you’ve written doesn’t quite make sense.  The whole idea behind doing this exercise is to get your mind ready and working so that you can begin your day.  Just think of it as exercise for your brain, and once you’ve done your ten minutes of writing, you’ll feel more prepared to tackle the rest of your day.

As always, I will be writing and posting over on my other blog, which can be found here. So please come visit me if you get a chance!  😉

    1. Thank you Michael, I’m so glad you’re back. I’ve been slacking over here as well. Lol… I need time and motivation. Hope I can keep up with you and everyone else. 😉


    1. I’m excited to see what you come up with KK, and I need some motivation this month myself. I didn’t do any of the prompts last month, so I need to get my rear in gear for this month! 😉

        1. Well summer is a good time to start! 😉 I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Please link back to my post whenever you can, that way I don’t miss any of your writings. 😉

          1. I will! Thank you for these! By the way, I’m going to start once I get a desk (which will probably be tomorrow), so I don’t have hunch over (I own a day-bed), and so I have more room for my arms than a tiny lap-desk. As soon as we get that done, I’m going to write as much as I can. And I promise I’ll put them on my blog too, so we can all see them! (Sorry, I always write really long comments on everything)
