Starting a story need not be hard

Writing prompts make starting easier.

If you’re new to my blog, I love writing prompts.

But not all prompts are created equal. That’s why I was so excited to find this blog post.

Ten Minute Writing Exercises  by Practical Creative Writing

What’s so different about these prompts? The prompt is not a word, picture or one sentence. No, there are three. Three questions to ask about one situation. I think this exercise could be applied to a WIP. Hmm… (I’m thinking.)

After you’ve read the post I’d love to know what you think.

Do you find this type of suggestive writing helpful?

Could you apply the same three question approach to your WIP?

I think it would be helpful for when I get stumped.

Leave me a comment and let’s talk.
