Writing Prompts

A writing prompt on its own isn’t very interesting. The exciting part is the story it inspires you to create.”

— Alice Sudlow

Prompts inspire writing. They simultaneously distract you; exercise your creativity, storytelling skills, imagination and writing skills; return you to a state of play, flow and the fun of writing; and help break creative blocks.

We have several writing prompts cited in this blog and on various sites cited in our Diigo. In addition, consider using quickwrites, a similar inspirational tool.
