Welcome, A-Z Blogging Challenge friends. This year, my theme is Prompt-a-day, with fun or thought-provoking writing prompts to use as a story start, warm up, or creativity stretching exercise.

Curiosity


History students of the future use time travel to learn about the past.


Discover how writing prompts can be a helpful tool, no matter where you are in your writing journey: 5 Reasons to Write with Prompts.

Looking for more writing inspiration?

Check out my latest release, 1001 Evocative Prompts for Fiction Writers. It will stimulate your thinking wherever you are in your writing journey and get you writing today. It provides story starts and writing inspiration for a wide variety of genres by focusing on emotions, character development, and pivotal moments.

You can face a blank page with confidence when you use these prompts to warm up, beat writer’s block, develop and maintain a writing habit, change up your routine, start a new project, experiment in a new genre, deepen parts of an existing story, or overcome burnout.

  1. Hi Laurel - I am curious by nature and have trouble not pursuing my thought process ... but as I don't write stories I just pursue my thirst for any knowledge that I might need when I'm writing my posts ... cheers Hilary

    1. Absolutely. Prompts are great for a change of pace, or even as a quick warm-up before you return to a work in progress.
