Writing Prompt…

Club Prompts

Here’s a simple and straightforward prompt…

1) Start with any of the following prompts and just do an open freewriting/brainstorming. Don’t worry about form yet…

– Invent a character nothing like yourself…

– Invent an ideal love-interest…

– Write about an ideal day…

2) Now, give your idea from 1) a form in which to exist… Poem? Story? Play? Creative Non-Fiction?


The key – for me, anyway – is to really get myself to do this in 2 steps instead of letting them blur together: freewriting/brainstorming, and THEN finding a form.
