More prompts to get you writing


If you need some prompts to get the muse working for you again, try these:

  • Explain the taste and smell of mint. Do you like it? What does it remind you of?
  • What goal have you set this year? Write about why it is important to you.
  • What is soft, warm and cuddly?
  • Write a story about a bird.
  • Observe one of your children and write about the faces they pull in different situations eg. happy, sad, frustrated, intrigued etc.
  • Look at a cupcake and imagine a fantasy world living inside it.

  • Feel the breeze on your face. Describe it.
  • You win something. How do you feel?
  • Write a romance of only 250 words.
  • Do a travel story on your dream destination.
  • Write about the saddest thing that ever happened to you.

I hope your muse is back and getting really pushy so that you have no more excuses not to write.
