Writing Prompts Suck - News

We are going to start to include writing prompts on this site for the readers.

Let me get this out of the way.

Writing prompts, whether daily, monthly, or yearly, suck

They are cheesy and too damn stupid for me to ever enjoy them enough to do them on a consistent basis.

Having said that, we are going to include writing prompts on this site.

Cause sometimes you can't think of anything to jot down, or maybe you want to challenge yourself (since that book you are writing is not enough of a challenge for you, I guess)

I admit that I don't like writing prompts, but that doesn't mean I don't use them.

I use them as much as any other writer, which means I use them like 10 percent of the time they are there. Maybe even less.

I created the prompts so that the readers have as much say in their works as possible.

I personally can't stand prompts that tell me note by note what to write.

The whole point of a prompt is to stretch your creativity muscles, to see how far you can take an idea that you would otherwise not begin.

I am going to give you a map, and then tell you which way town is.

I don't care if you use the map, discard it, or ever get to town, but don't stay here, where I gave you the map. You have to keep moving. That is the only rule to these prompts. After-all they are more for you, then me anyway.

Keep an eye out for the different types of writing prompts that we will feature on this blog.

We hope you use this prompts as a way to explore your creativity.

Thanks for reading.
