Today’s writing prompt will concentrate on something a little different. Many writers find they function better with a writing routine. Different people have different routines. Mine consists of writing during the same time of day with a cup of hot tea and noise-cancelling headphones. Yours might be something else.

If you don’t have a routine and you’re having trouble writing (or finishing a piece), now is the time to try building the routine that will help your writing career. Hopefully today’s writing prompt will help you do just that.

Da Prompt: Every day of the week (starting today) write a minimum of 500 words about the Subject of the Day.

Da Days, Da Subjects:

Today (Wednesday) – Apple
Thursday – Baby
Friday – Cat
Saturday – Dragstrip
Sunday – Excavator
Monday – Frills
Tuesday – Guava

Da Wordcount: 500 words or more.

Have fun!

Writers are frequently asked the question “Where do you get your ideas?” The question is a hard one to answer because we all find our inspiration in different places. Some people need to be given prompts, little snippets of ideas to spark their imaginations.

With that in mind, I am posting Writing Prompt Wednesdays. The goal is to inspire writers with exercises meant to train their skills and fire up the creative juices. There are rules. Most prompts will have associated word counts or style instructions. These are not meant to restrict the writer, but give the writer a chance to explore different ways of writing.

If you are an author in search of that one juicy idea, I hope these posts help. If you have ideas for writing prompts, please let me know.

Da Rules:

1) Anything goes so long as you stick to the spirit of the prompt.

2) I ask that if you do publish something based on one of my prompts, that you post the good news (and the link) in the comments of the prompt that inspired your success. You want other people to help you celebrate, right?
