These are excellent prompts, especially well suited for speculative fiction writers. My favorite is the prompt about seeing something out of the corner of your eye (that happens to me sometimes!). Thanks for adding these.
The main reason for this is that new writers think that, because short stories are short, they require less writing technique. In fact, short stories are equally, if not more demanding to create, *because* they are short.
The article was very interesting and helped me understand where I am in my writing skills (that is in comparison to others). I must respond to the comment before me, it 8767 s simply too tempting. I wrote a short essay for myself a while back because I was frustrated with my english teachers controlling the end product of my writing. My essay explained that correct english is useless, you use grammar to get your point across (as well as word choice). If your point comes across as you want it to, tell your 8775 internal editor 8776 to be quiet for a moment.
I find the comments much more helpful than the article. All the opinions teach you that writing is as you make it, nothing more.
Creative writing is anything where the purpose is to express thoughts, feelings and emotions rather than to simply convey information.
Your prompts are definitely creative and helpful, but what I 8767 m most impressed with is how you respond so positively and encouragingly to everyone who replied to this. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of encouragement or approval from even a complete stranger to shift a writers thought from maybe being able to do something to just doing it. I haven 8767 t written in months, and are still my having any real luck, but I know I will write again someday, and I just thought it should be mentioned that you are a good person for encouraging others to do what they love. Best of luck to you
your pet starts talking to you in perfect english and tells you what he/she really thinks of you. what does he/she say?
Today I 8767 d like to share a mash-up of creative writing prompts. There are no rules. Write a poem. Write a short story. Write an essay. Aim for a hundred words or aim for a hundred thousand. Just start writing, and have fun.
The best way to increase your proficiency in creative writing is to write, write compulsively, but it doesn 8767 t mean write whatever you want. There are certain things you should know first it helps to start with the right foot.
I 8767 m so glad that these prompts inspired you, Christi. I think many writers go through phases when they drift away from the craft, but when you 8767 re called back to it, that may be a sign. Follow it and keep writing!
Finally, say that as Paul is missing, we will have to make some missing person posters, explaining who Paul is (with a picture so others can identify him!), where he was last seen and who to contact if he is found. When these are made, you could post them around the school.
