In an effort to aid my goal of writing a novel for this year, I need some kind of motivation.
And so an idea popped into my head.
I know, I never thought I would use them either. I’ve been generating a list of writing prompts, so far around 60 or so, and starting tomorrow I’m going to focus on hitting 500 words for each prompt. 500 words at the least. One prompt a day. I’ll be posting three or four of them here on this blog each week, along with my regular things which are appearing to become more and more scattered. I mean scattered as in subject material.
Every Sunday, I’ll post a new list of prompts that you will begin to work on the next day. You should shoot for 500 to 600 words. Remember, these are going to serve to jump-start our creativity.
Anyways, I challenge any of you young writers, or writers in general to work with me on these writing prompts if you want. Keep what you write to yourself, or send them to me and I’ll post them on my blog for others to see. It’s completely up to you.
If you want to send them to me, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post them as an addition to my prompt. If you send them to me, be sure to include your name at least so that I can give credit to you.
I’m excited about this, and hopefully the few people who stumble across Running After The One, and you who are my faithful readers will be excited about this as well.
So…get your pens, or fingers ready because tomorrow it begins, and without further ado, this weeks writing prompts!
