Writing Prompts…

Okay, so in my last post I attempted to start a monthly writing prompts. But with all the projects I have going on currently, I realized that was not such a great idea, regardless of how I love such creativity!

As you other writers with fulltime jobs know, it’s hard enough finding time to work on projects. Each minute should be savored effectively as much as possible. To that point, I’ve decided to go back to my normal – post as necessary since this is easier with time demands. In the meantime, if you do like writing prompts check out these sites:

Hurting Feet or Dying Shoes?

So, I was working finding material for the teen web page for my day job and got the idea to start a monthly interactive writing promt. So, starting today, here goes:

You are a shoe bought by a lady whose feet are too big to fit your curves. Describe the scene when she first wears you…

This should be fun! I’ll be back with my own post later.

Happy Writing for 2013!

Happy 2013 writer folks! And what a busy start of the year it has been! I’ve barely had a chance to have some time to myself – needless to say that my writing had taken a stand still. Until now, that is. I’m back to inserting writing into my routine:

  • on my train ride to/from work
  • during lunch breaks
  • throughout various times at home.

As you continue to write as well, I hope you’ll find great inspiration throughout your days to construct meaningful writing. Remember that developing a routine helps, but if that’s difficult for you to do, try to bring a notebook with you at all times to write down anything that comes to mind. And remember, there are different parts of the writing process that count:

  • taking research notes
  • people watching and jotting down movements/action
  • listening in on conversations to gather information for character traits/personalities
  • watching movies to determine how plot lines are connected
  • having a conversation with someone else in the role of your characters to see how a scene plays out
  • anything else you find helpful that you want to share?
