Since you’re here, I suppose you’re in need of some inspiration. Or maybe you just want a challenge. Or you just stumbled upon this page and are curious how odd and crazy the prompts I came up with can be. Regardless of the motive, I’m happy you’re here.
If you’re a writer though, I congratulate you on taking action to stop procrastinating or getting out of your comfort zone. I’ve come to realise that sometimes when we feel like writing (maybe for a project we’ve already engaged in) but don’t actually know what to write, writing prompts are a great way of making the wheels in our head spin. And that’s wonderful, we don’t want “the muscle of creativity” to stop training. Truth is that you get better at writing just by writing. If you’d like to read more about my opinion on writing prompts efficacy, I suggest you read THIS post.
I hope you’ll enjoy this list of 30 writing prompts and that it will inspire you to write. Do drop a link in the comment directing me to your work if you use any of them, I’d love to read it. Also, you could use the hashtag #rebeccaraddwritingprompts (this way, more people who used any of the prompts could find you).
