I’ve devoted nearly five years of my aging brain to writing prompts here on WordPress, and I need a break. I hope any of you who need a bit of inspiration will go back and do some of the writing prompts from past years. I’m sure I will pop in here from time to time to post a random word or two. Until then, you can find me writing regularly on my other blog, www.herwritinghaven.com
Welcome to another month of story starters. Please use these prompts to inspire you to write about anything you like, whether a fictional or non-fictional story, poem, narrative, journal entry, etc. Just be creative! And be sure to leave me a link or a pingback so that I can find all of your lovely writings. Have a great month, everyone! ~M xo
Week 1 (March 1-7) – The giant fell into the raging sea.
Week 2 (March 8-14) – Gamma rays entered her veins.
Week 3 (March 15-21) – Paper stars and green fizz.
Week 4 (March 22-31) – He traced every curve with the tip of his tongue.
If you’re new to prompt writing, and don’t really understand how to use the prompts, please consider the following writing exercise.
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. 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, and hopefully I can keep up with all of you!
And one last thing before I forget! I made a quick tutorial for those of you who have been having trouble trying to figure out how to Pingback your posts. Please go here, if you’d like to view the tutorial.
Well that’s it, another month down! And do you realize, (if my calculations are correct, and Dorinda will know…) 😉 if you’ve been doing these every day from the beginning, you’ve now done 700 prompts! That’s so hard for me to believe! Yowza! That’s a long time! I hope all of you will continue to keep writing. I do this for all of you here on WP because I want you to have some sort of inspiration to help you keep going. I know how hard it is when you don’t have that. And so this is my way of saying thanks to all of you, who are such an encouragement to me. I love you guys and I do this because I care about all of you. ~M xo
