You would think that we would run out of steam eventually, the ones who write on a daily basis. You would think we would not have much to say after years of publishing things.
However, the world is full of content to write about.
Some of us write about a specific thing (called a niche)… some of us write about what we enjoy or our lives… Some of us write full stories by chapter.
Regardless of what we choose to write about, we have an unlimited supply of inspiration.
Take this article for instance — I am writing about continuing to write.
I am no stranger to what they call “writers block”. I fall into slumps of time where I have nothing to type onto my computer. On those days — I go searching. Searching for inspiration from work by other writers, writing prompts presented on the world wide web… or just by talking with someone in my home.
If you run into trouble quite a bit when it comes to writing — Here are 10 writing prompts I keep tucked away in a journal in a pinch.
Weirdest thing that has ever happened to you (or around you).
Your dream wedding.
If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
Favorite purchase of the year.
Why did you have kids (or not have kids).
Describe your favorite color without mentioning the color and have others guess what it is.
What is your slogan?
What is your favorite side gig?
If you wrote a book about your life — what would be the title and the introduction?
Most inspirational thing anyone has ever said to you.
Writing sounds so simple and straight forward. However, it can be a bit harder than one would think. Sometimes, prompts can spark some new inspiration for some new work.
In fact, I have gotten inspiration for poetry work from writing prompts I’ve found. It amazes me the impact words can have on us. (Not just in the writing aspect… but in all areas of life).
