Uninspiration | Prompt

Today’s writing prompt is straight out of my own life! This week has really taken it out of me and so:

Write about a time when you’ve felt uninspired. Is there a cause? Is it your job? Is it your writing? Describe how crappy you might feel and really plumb the depths of your malaise.Then write about the avoidance behaviors you can use to get over these feelings. Go for a walk, call a friend up for a gab session, play with your cat.

Stranger Danger!

Today’s writing prompt courtesy of Writer’s Digest:

Start your story with “I hate to bother you, but I have something important to ask.” And end your story with, “And that’s how I ended up being the proud owner of a (fill in the blank).”

The Importance of the Little Things | Prompt

This prompt comes from my writing group:

Pick a flat character and imagine what’s in their dresser. Specifically, the special trinkets or mementos that sit in or on top of their dresser. Is it a ticket stub? A single earring? Make a history of that object and write a scene for its owner where this small thing adds depth to the character.
