For those of you inspired to write, but lacking inspiration for the moment, there’s always the “prompt.” Regardless of its source, a good prompt–word, phrase, idea–will get you moving again. Here are some online sources for writing prompts:
Creative Writing Prompts: http://creativewritingprompts.com/ Your first view will be a table of numbers. Mouse over any one of them and a prompt will pop up. If that prompt doesn’t inspire you, there are nearly 350 of them. One of them ought to hit your creative “button”!
Writers Digest Creative Writing Prompts: http://www.writersdigest.com/prompts You can search for prompts in the search box—love, hate, everything in between.
Prompt Generator: http://jc-schools.net/write/create.htm You can “generate” prompts with the next, previous, or random prompt buttons. Some of the prompts are aimed at a junior crowd, but some are age-independent.
Daily Writing Prompts: http://www.theteacherscorner.net/daily-writing-prompts/ According to The Teacher’s Corner, they ” have selected an event from our monthly event calendars to be the focus of the writing prompt.” Scroll down and select prompts by month. Also aimed at school-aged young people.
There are a number of other sites, primarily aimed at the teacher-student audience; however, if none of these sites floats your boat, pick a book of your shelf, open it at a random page, and start reading. Find a phrase or word that “sticks” and you should have something to write about.
