Want to bust through summer boredom?

Sometimes I need to shake up my writing a bit.

A writing prompt here or there does that for me.

Thanks to some fabulous bloggers that provide the links, the prompts and the communities I’m able to practice my skills.

So dust off your keyboard, blow out the cobwebs from your mind, set your butt in a chair and head over to with one of their prompts and get rid of those summertime writing blues.

Pick your poison, from 5 sentences to well you decide. You might be surprised where one seed of an idea might lead.

I know I’ve listed some of these before, and I’m interested in finding more. So if you know about one I’ve missed, please tell me in the comments section. I’m always looking for fresh ideas.

  1. I have real trouble with new book ideas, so writing prompts might help me develop a new project. And while I wait for rejections on my first book, working on a new project might be a smart move 🙂

    1. I can’t tell you the times a simple prompt has helped me through a road block with my writing. Other times the prompts keep me from getting rusty. Thanks for taking the time to comment. I hope you’ll share my blog post with your readers.
