As promised, here’s a few positive writing prompts from one of my most recent purchases: 642 Tiny Things to Write About. If you enjoy the prompts you can pick up a copy from The Book Depository. They are nice simple prompts, most of which are answerable in just a single word or a couple of lines. You can answer them truthfully, drawing from your own experiences, or you can make up characters and write fictional responses (I’ve chosen the former today). Feel free to post your own answers below!
Think about your day so far (even if it’s still morning). What’s the highlight at this point?
I should write something profound here, I feel. But no. The highlight of my day has been finally getting my hands on Pokemon Go! I was torn between Charmander and Pikachu as a starting Pokemon, but even though Pikachu is adorable, I just love the fire types!
Write the title of your autobiography.
My Wandering Words
You live in a world in which everyone gets one word tattooed on their forehead. What’s the word you pick?
Think of the best career you can possibly imagine, and write the reasons why you would be qualified for that job.
Story Dreamer. Delivering story ideas to uninspired authors based off my dreams. (If magic were real I think I would actually transfer the dream to their mind – for a price, of course).
Qualifications: I have the best, most vivid dreams ever. Almost every story I write has originated from a dream – it is my best source of inspiration!
Here’s a few extra prompts if you want to try them:
- Tweet the story of your life.
- There is a message on your voice mail that will change your life for the better.
- Someone is designing a museum about your life. Describe one of the exhibits.
I hope everyone is having a great month so far! Personally, having #30DaysofConfidence in the forefront of my mind for the last two weeks has definitely made me step out of my comfort zone more. One of the coolest things I’ve done this month is a collaborative art project! Art can be such a personal thing, so teaming up with someone for a joint painting experience was a real learning curve, and has definitely challenged me creatively.
