Hello everyone. Today is Labor Day in the U.S. So, I thought that I would make today's writing prompt simply: What does Labor Day mean to you? If you are from another country, it may not mean anything to you. I don't know other cultures well enough to know if there is any sort of "Labor Day" celebration. I would love to hear your answers. Please, comment below. Have a great day!
Hello everyone. Summer vacation is almost here. School will be out and people will do what they do during the summer. Some people may even be camping.
One of my favorite summer sounds is the sound of water splashing up against the shore and trickling back. To me, it is a pleasant and soothing sound. So, I decided to use it as a story starter this week. LOL! Maybe it is wishful thinking; hoping to be able to go camping soon. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the assignment this week.
Hello everyone! Today's writing prompt is to list your favorite animal and why it is your favorite. It can be a specific animal, like maybe your dog, Rover. Or, it can be dogs in general…or whatever your favorite animal may be.
Many children's stories feature animals. Maybe not as much, but they are found in MG, YA, and adult books as well. So, to bring to mind how you feel about animals may give you a great idea for a story. And, to me, that is the point of a writing prompt… to give you an idea when you are experiencing writer's block.
Hello everyone! Today's writing prompt is a strategy to help get through one of the most popular problems in writing. Often, when we write our topic is too broad. It is difficult to keep on task with our writing, because the topic is to broad. We get lost or overwhelmed and start writing off topic.
I can remember writing in school and having teachers tell me to narrow my topic. Hopefully, this prompt will help you do that with your writing.
So…choose a topic…say, "education" for example. And, write it at the top of your page. Then, write down as many narrower topics that you can think of that have to do with your broad topic. For example, for the broad topic of "education" you may write things like: special education, science, favorite teacher, how to study for a test, etc.
