If an ATM could be custom created for you what would it spew instead of money?
At the moment words. I've written 5,086 words in the last 7 days, not counting blogs. I'm falling behind my 1000 words a day goal, but every one of them came easier than finding a topic for today's blog.
So I thought I'd get creative and steal one from the web. No, not someone else's blog, but a topic. I once read a blog about coming up with things to blog about and went in search of something similar.
My Google search for "writing topics" yielded a variety of links, but it was the one for creative writing prompts that caught my attention.
Usually, these sites have a ready list of writing prompts, but this list was made up of numbers and you had to hover over the number to see the prompt. I picked three at random, okay, I may have hovered and moved on without reading the longs ones to come up with my picks.
Free write for 3 minutes on this clichè "Back to Square One."
I love clichè this should be easy...
Because I consider myself a work in progress every day is a fresh start. I try not to beat myself up too badly when I don't reach my goals. I simply set new goals for a new day and it's back to square one for me.
This next one caught my eye as fun.
Imagine your life is now a book. In 100 words, write the blurb for it.
Talented writer Rogenna Brewer is determine to make her living as an author. She'll use every connection she has (and she has plenty), any wile (feminine or otherwise) and her substantial strength of will to make word count happen.
Her rusty Muse is equally determined to keep her out of her writing chair. Will leaving her day job to write full-time spell financial ruin? Or is she writer enough to take everything her Muse doles out and more...
The above is a parody of one of my Superromance backcover blurbs.
Now it's your turn!!! Choose one of the three prompts above, or choose your own at Creative Writing Prompts and have fun with it in the comments.
