I’m thinking, weekends are usually when I’m burnt out from my day job all week long. Creativity is at a low and my writing well is dry.
So, how about some writing prompts to kick us in gear for the weekend?
5 prompts to pump up your word count:
When writing with a specific character in mind:
“1. What would your character do if…someone inappropriately came on to her/him?”
From: What Would Your Character Do? ~ Eric Maisel, PhD and Ann Maisel
2. “Write about the streets of your city.”
From: Writing Down the Bones ~ Natalie Goldberg
3. “Write a page in the first person, assuming the voice of someone the opposite gender. The main point is to completely lose yourself and become another.”
From What If? ~Anne Bernays and Pamela Painter
4. “Make a list of all your current of past hobbies.” (Good for an essay or nonfiction how-to article!)
From: Writer Mama ~ Christina Katz
5. “You picked up a hitchhiker.”
From: A Writer’s Book of Days ~ Judy Reeves
