30-Day Writing Prompts

Hello there!

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).

The Reason

Some days, I don’t write because I want to,

But because I have to;

Cause the demons within

Wouldn’t stop tormenting me otherwise.

Bored of Writing?!

Hello, guys! How’s your week going? I hope you like the posts on this blog.

Today I’m going to respond to a question that I’ve been asked a lot in my life, in particular by those who know me personally. The problem we’re talking about is: “Do you not get bored of writing?”

Till know, you might already know – and if you don’t, you’ll find out now – that I’m not only a blogger but also a writer. So I can see where this curiosity comes from. I write book, or blog posts or working as a freelancer in what concerns the writing sphere, and when I do none of that I usually read. My life revolves around words – whether literature or not.

(Mind you, I’m not that boring; I go out and have fun once in a while. Haha)

When people ask me this, I only tell them that I do not. I enjoy what I do, and I mean it. I fiercely adore what I do! No one forced me to write books or start a blog. It was my choice.

Writing is my passion.

I think that for those out there who don’t really know what it means to be so drawn to something that you cannot literally think about anything else I make no sense. For them, I seem to sink into literature; I’d rather say I dive into it. How could I ever get bored of something that make my life more beautiful, that makes it seem fuller? I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.

It’s like I have all these voices inside of my head that drive me to share their stories.

I do have writer’s block now and then, but I don’t let this affect me to the extent of not making me cease writing. If I don’t have an idea for the next chapter I find myself writing an article or some poetry, or fanfiction. Of course, I do other things like taking walks, dancing and chatting with friends, but that’s not what I want to pinpoint in this post. Since I’ve written my first novel, I haven’t once thought about quitting writing – and I’ve had my dark periods as anybody else. If anything those times made me a greater writer.

Boredom occurs when you do the same thing over and over again. Writing is different every time.

One chapter is not like the other. Each had its challenges and makes you struggle. But the satisfaction when you finished it is incommensurable. I would high-five myself every time I finish a chapter and tell myself I did a good job. It might not be my best chapter, but I managed to write it and it’s enough for me.

Writing is for persons who are determined.

Do you get easily bored of your hobbies or do you stick to it? Also, if you’re a blogger/writer – do you not get bored of writing?

Do You Have What It Takes to Be a Writer?

Most likely.

Wait, that was out of blue. Ha-ha. Let me explain. (And start, as I should have, at the beginning.)

Believe it or not, I have few people around me who wish to take the same path I had and be a writer. When we talked, my question was always the same “What stops you?” In this era of technology, there are no boundaries – from sites where you can post your work to free blogs. And you can erase your work from any of them at any time. What these persons throw at me is

“I couldn’t be a writer. I don’t have what it takes.”

This made me question what it takes to be a writer. I took some time to think about this problem, and I finally have an answer. So, if you are one of these persons, please listen carefully!

Being a writer is not about degrees or courses! It’s not about being a certain age!

Being a writer is about having a way with words!

If you read enough, at some point you could create something yourself. All persons are creative whether they realise it or not. So to answer this question efficiently, I have to know a few things about you:

  1. Do you like to read?
  2. Do you like to create?
  3. Do you have a story to share?

And the most important one:

Do you want to be a writer?

If your answer was “yes” then congratulations! The next thing you need is to get started and stop procrastinating. No one is perfect. You will make mistakes – so what? I wrote my first novel at fourteen years old; I admit it could’ve beenw itten better. But if that story hadn’t been written, I would have never been where I am today.

We all start somewhere.

If you have a dream, you can spend a lifetime studying, planning, and getting ready for it. What you should be doing is getting started.

If You Hadn’t Been a Writer, You’d Have Liked to Be…

Hello, guys! How’s your week going? If you read my post 1K?!, you already know mine is awesome!

Someone asked yesterday what I would like to do if I wasn’t a writer. Since I am still a student, I was surprised at first to be asked this. I am indeed a writer and my life seems to revolve around this, but I also have other plans for the future, aside from writing.

I thought that many people who read my blog might have the same impression (that I don’t have another plan for the future), and I decided to write about it. I am a human, after all, so it’s just normal that I have dreams.

Are you ready for it?

Are you sure?

Just kidding – it’s nothing spectacular. In the future, I wish to be a professor. I love to help people and to explain things, and I adore learning new things (I am a sucker for knowledge) – so this profession fits me well, I think. I also had few teachers who had changed my life with their words, and the idea that I find incredible the idea that I might “guide” someone. And even if it doesn’t happen, meeting new people, working with different persons – I love all of it.

I know it won’t be easy. It’s not like you can just snap your fingers and become a professor. But I’m hard-working, determined and passionate. And I believe! That’s very important.

I could be the most successful writer in the world; I would still like to teach.

What would you like to do? And have there been teachers that changed your life?

Broken Souls and Twisted Beliefs

“Why, Maya? You know he’s not right for you!”

Said girl clenched her small fists. Her usually soft features were now hardened with determination. She had so many reasons for her choice of accepting Daniel’s company. Her brunette friend could simply not understand. Maya didn’t judge her, though; she had expected the other girl to be unable to grasp the depth of her relationship with Daniel.

“I’m not right for him either.”

“My point. You shouldn’t be together. It’s craziness, Maya. He’s rough and emotionally unstable. Not to add that he’s the type who likes solitude. You two wouldn’t resist for too long. You’re too bright!”

Maya smiled bitterly. Oh, how wrong her friend was! In truth, she was a coward. She despised the crowds, yet was so afraid of being alone with her thoughts that she obsessively looked for the places where silence and peace were foreign notions. She was talkative, but it was a façade which she had carefully build over the years. She and Daniel were more alike than anyone would’ve guessed.

“You’re exaggerating, as usual.”


“Just, trust me on this one.”

“I… I do. But I want to understand. Why?  Why would you do something so reckless? If you fall for him, not even too hard, he’ll destroy you. Maya, his hands had never been good at something else. He ruins everything he touches. He’ll ruin you.”

Maya laughed humourlessly. “It’s too late for that, don’t you think?”

The brunette bit her lip, wondering how to proceed further. She didn’t want to remind Maya of her past experiences with men. It would’ve been a cruelty.

“He’s not half as bad as he lets you think,” the blonde said while massaging her temples. She was having a headache. “And even if he were,” she took a deep breath, prepared for the consequences of the bomb she was about to drop, “I think we sometimes need someone just as broken as us to heal ourselves.”

Q & A (writer)

Hello! I thought you might want to know more things about me as a writer so I came up with some questions to which I will answer. If you want to know anything else, feel free to ask. If it’s the case, I will also do a Q&A part two.

Also, I’m thinking about making a Q&A regarding me as a person – likes, dislikes, hobbies, etc. Would you like it?

  1. When did you start writing?

I started writing fanfiction when I was in the fifth grade and looking back at it, it makes me cringe. However, I wrote before that, only my works were rather lovely letters in which I expressed my thoughts for my loved once.

But it was a beginning for me, as in the seventh grade I’ve had the first attempt at writing an original novel. The concept of it wasn’t bad but was too much for a child to handle – as in too complicated. I dropped that book’s idea, but I continued to write.

  1. Why did you start writing?

Well, it felt right. Anything who finds his calling will know what I’m talking about. It will sound cliché, but I feel like I have to write. It’s like there are these voices in my head that demand me to tell their stories. I love what I do and I love to create emotion. Books impressed and inspired me, and I wanted to do the same to others.

  1. What’s your genre?

Well, that a question authors should respond to easily; yet, I find myself at a crossroad. Mainly, it is romance. But Action, Fantasy and YA are also in my sphere. However, no matter what genre I write in, my books always contain a lot of physic analysis.

  1. When did you decide to become a writer?

I didn’t know I was going to be a writer, despite my passion for writing. I would rather say I didn’t decide to be a writer, but the writing itself decided to make me one. After I published my second novel, I realised the first one hadn’t been pure luck. I knew what I was doing, or so I thought – the more mature me could question it. So, after my second novel was out I was like “Every successful person encourages newbies to do what they like, to follow their passion if they want to be happy. I finally know what I could do all my life and never grow bored of it – write.”

  1. Do you believe in writer’s block?

No. Writer’s block is a lame excuse when you find yourself in a difficult situation. I think there are times when you might not know where the book goes or how to continue, but if you take a deep breath, take a walk, and try to see the things from a different point of view, it’s impossible not to get over that situation.
