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).

Day 1. #30daybloggingchallenge

List 10 things that make you really happy.

It seems that today we talk about happiness. I think it fits the month of August since it is the less stressful one for me – and I think I am not the only one.

You see, I am an optimistic person. Finding ten things that make me happy should be a piece of cake… well, I actually had to think about the answer for several minutes. It seems I know, but wasn’t sure at first what could be put on this list.

1. Thunderstorms

Ha ha. I think many people hadn’t expected this one. Indeed, the scary thunderstorm that makes some shiver and hide in their beds is something that makes me really happy. I know it is dangerous, don’t get me wrong. But it’s something calming for me to see the lightening, to hear the thunders, the rain pouring heavily; I am always smiling and feel inspired when it’s raining. Many times I fall asleep on that sound.

However, as much as I enjoy it, and sometimes being in the middle of it if it’s safe (so not many times, as you might have already guessed), I don’t like when I have a busy day and it “stands” in my way. Not because it’s bothering, although that is partly true, but because I can’t give into the sensation, into admiring it properly.

2. Long walks

I have a driving license. And I haven’t realised how much I like long walks until a few years ago. I went to London, and it was one of the places I’ve always dreamt of visiting; that means I tried to see as much of it as I could, and I tried to have an authentic experience. So I bought a map and started to wander on the streets. Besides, if you ask me, the taxis were quite expensive – or maybe they tried to fool us since we were tourists and didn’t know which were the longest/shortest routes.

Since then I walk almost daily about ten kilometres. I am more interested in yoga and living in the present, so this pays an important role as well. When I walk, I look around (at nature, at people’s expressions, at the buildings) and I feel what’s around me (the solid ground beneath my feet, the air I inhale in my lungs, the singing of the birds, the warmth of the sun).

It makes me happy. The experience seems each time anew and still refreshing. It charges my batteries.

August 30-Day Blogging Challenge

Hello, guys! How did you spend the month of July?

It was very busy for me. I had to pass certain exams at the end of June and in the middle of July, and that was why I had skipped posting on some days. As we may say: life happened.

However, everything turned out fine, and now I am enjoying the vacation, sipping on cocktails, taking long walks, reading books I didn’t get to read, as well as writing and blogging.

Because of this prolonged and unexpected pause, I thought I owed you one, so this is my payback: 30 days of blogging. Outside the regular posts I usually make, I want you to get to know me better, and this is exactly what these 30 days will do.
