Instead of a prompt of the day like I usually do, I’d like to take a moment to say something that pertains to, specifically, book writing. As I’ve probably mentioned before, my friend and I are co-authoring with each other, and have been for about two years now. Today I have had a tremendous amount of inspiration, or at least, inclination to write. I want to encourage those of you who are completely stumped on what to do right now in your novel; don’t give up just because you haven’t had good writing time for a while. Sometimes it takes me almost a month to get back into the swing of the things, but if I keep trying, eventually I hit a sweet spot. Like this morning, for example; I worked for nearly four hours without getting tired of it, and I’m about to go back at it again. In short, just keep trying, because at some time or other you will be inspired to really get things done. Keep writing!
You’ve just become a secret agent. It is now your responsibility to isolate yourself from friends and family as much as possible. How will you deal with the isolation, the rejection, and the emotional difficulty of completing such a task?
If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Discuss the advantages and/or disadvantages of the trait through the perspective of a teenager who possesses it.
Write in the perspective of a window. Pick a place, any place. Will your window be in a skyscraper? Will it see birds and window washers, maybe even someone falling? Or will it be in the countryside? You decide.
Today’s prompt might seem extra challenging to you, but then again, it may be the easiest thing you’ve ever written; write a poem, a “rhymey”, sappy, run-of-the-mill poem. This is a great test to see whether or not your vocabulary is extensive. If it is, you’ll find that bizarre words, or at least those uncommonly used in everyday conversation, will come to you almost immediately. If you’re vocabulary is weak, or you are a little out of touch with your inner writer, you’ll find the poem will be utterly simplistic and probably won’t be good enough to please you. Try it out!
