The Craft of Writing: Two blogs with most of the prompts you need to light up your creativity
Writing is a tough hobby, and there are times of complete blackout when a writer can’t think of any topic, his spirit could be willing but the right vibe is just isn’t there. Fortunately, a writer facing such predicament can summon prompts. Call them magic wands, and you’d be right.
Below are two solid sources for your writing prompts, and how they can power your writing Craft.
Single words like “forever”, “action”, “believe” and “rise” are probably the best prompts for a creative writer. WordPress Daily Post offers some of the best single-word prompts on the internet. Opinions varies on this assertion, but I sometimes prefer prompts that aren’t similar to “topic suggestion”, WordPress prompts you with a single word, and let’s run with it.
Certainly there are writers who prefer to be challenged, and instead of a single-word prompt, are inspired by a full topic prompt. A cool place to go would be Journaling Sage. Journaling Sage gives you a whole topic, and they have tons of it. With a list of topics covering every day of the month, any visitor is guaranteed a takeaway. Imagine what you can do with today’s prompt, “What small action could you take today to feel more peaceful?”
For two reasons I recommended WordPress and Journaling; both have prompts that are inspiring, and both offer different words or topic for every day. That means you have 24 hours until a word, or topic loses its climax. Of course any one can continue writing on the same topic well over the deadline. However I like the adrenaline rush of deadlines.
I called prompt the magic wand of writing because it could trigger all sorts of imagination in a writer. “Aware” is today’s prompt in WordPress, and after writing this article, I am heading straight to see what folks are constructing with it.
