Writing Prompts  

Writing prompts are very useful to give you ideas when you have none. They can help you start with a story or help you to continue when you are stuck in the middle of one.


Prompts give instant writing practice and help produce good work. Somet
hing you have written for practice can be good but it is not necessary it would be perfect every time. One should write daily not for some great masterpiece but as a daily ritual for practice. One should practice everyday and try to improve and this is how great artists do it!


The more you write, the more you like it and the better you get at it. Never be scared of words, using strange ideas and dialogues! Remember, if you do not like the result, nobody will ever see it but you. The aim is to enable yourself to have freedom with the language and developing the creative spark in you!


I think writing prompts are a really enjoyable way to practice writing and provide myself with ideas. When I searched the internet, I found many prompts but they began with Write about a day when…. Being a fantasy lover, they were not very amusing for me!


Now that you know how useful these writing prompts can be, I am providing you all with some sites where you can find valuable writing prompts::

  • Teacherscorner.net is a great site which provides you with excellent writing prompts on a daily basis as they are arranged conviniently in a monthwise order.
  • If you are not comfortable with the prompts you find, you can also make your own prompts which can be meant for other writers of the same genere. You can also let your creativity flow through this way!
  • CanTeach writing prompts/journal contain topcs which also provide valuable writing prompts.
  • Random Logline Generator provides you with motivaing topics for your stories.
  • Pumping Your Muse Prompts has prompts on a daily basis too and you can also post your original creations here1
  • Story Spinner is a fun place to try where you can find a starting phrase, setting, situation, word etc.


Let your creativity flows ........

    Hi Meghna,
    You are so right about how useful writing prompts are. I use them almost on a daily basis. Even if I am not posting to one of my blogs I am usually working on one of them getting the next post ready for its debut. Keep up the good work!
