Wednesday Blog Prompts

I bet more people would write if they had a prompt. I perhaps rely too heavily on meme's but sometimes its a necessary evil .

Here are some blog prompts for Wednesday
You don't have to do them all pick which ones inspire you to write... pass them all up if you don't feel inspired. They are here to help pull down that writers block. I know it helps me.

Option 1 Prompt Me Project

 I am doing this one as part of a project on

Ready to embark on your new adventure? When you're finished, you'll have a beautiful record of random days, what they meant to you, and what you want to remember.

Step 1: Create a 'Today' folder on your desktop. When you take or find a photo you want to include in your book (for us its a blog), name it and drop it into the folder. When you get a prompt to upload, you'll already have the photo handy.

So whether it's a long nap, a long day, or a long overdue surprise, get ready to document today. . .

1: Upload your Picture
2: Describe your day...

Option 2:
Sometimes structure is the best way to maintain a writing routine and to get writing done. But sometimes it helps to deviate from that rigid structure and try multiple ways of writing. In the spirit of trying new ways of writing, I’ve included a wide variety of prompts for different genres in today’s posts. I found these posts are various online sources that I’d encourage you check out. Some of them are for fiction, some are for non-fiction. Some are geared toward flash fiction, some are more suited for a longer story. What you do with these prompts is entirely up to you. You can stick to the genre or form that you’re most comfortable with or you can step outside your comfort zone and try writing something new. Check out these prompts:
Write a story in seven words.
What’s on your mind right now?
Describe a favorite TV show of yours.
What’s the best thing that happened this week?
Write a 250-word sketch about a sore loser.
Include these elements in a story: a goatee, a cell phone, headlights.
First sentence: Gertie cradled Herbert’s hand in hers and stared the the age spots on the back of her hand.
I hope these prompts have inspired you to write something you wouldn’t normally write. Or, if you preferred, that it helped you write something interesting and fun. Above all, I hope that you took some time out of your busy day just to write. It is only by writing that we can improve our craft, after all. Have fun!

Some ideas for topics
...When do you put up your Christmas decorations?
....What the hardest thing for you to write about?
....You find yourself sitting at your desk, watching the cursor on your computer blink over and over again. With each blink, your eyes become more heavy and soon you fall asleep. Moments later, you awake to find yourself not sitting at your desk, but in a strange land. Describe where you are, who you meet, and how you try to get home (if you even want to, that is..)
.....What is your dream job? (And what's keeping you from living that dream?)
.... Is there something you swore you'd never do, but ended up doing it anyway?
