A Prompt A Day…..

A couple of months back I had the chance to see Ros Barber talk about her new book, The Marlowe Papers and hear her read some of her poetry. Wow! :o)

Ros runs a website with fellow writer Kate Marillat called Be The Writer You Dream Of Being and together they run writing courses and do talks. I can highly recommend it πŸ™‚

So when Kate requested that readers submit articles, I jumped at the chance (you know me, I do like to waffle on about writing stuff lol).

Head on over to Ros & Kate’s website to read my article, A Prompt A Day Keeps Writers Block Away where I talk about my experience of using writing prompts.

Please leave a comment. Oh, and let me know what you thought of the article? πŸ™‚

  1. I loved your post and agree that committing to writing practice is what is required to make the leap from wannabe to just doing it! Judy Reeve’s book of writing prompts is a excellent resource. I use her too, though have never worked through the whole book….now that would be a challenge worth taking on…I think you might just have given me an idea ofr my New Year’s Resolution! xxx


  2. Vicki, I used journals for years and found the same. Sit down and let the mood take me … a different subject, poem or small snippet each day. The more you to it, the better you get at letting your muse stretch and grow πŸ™‚


  3. I’m not that good at prompts, but have found that I have plenty to write about without them! Just writing my morning words every day has noticeably improved the flow of my creativity.
    You are an inspiration, Vikki, and I especially love that you quoted Ray Bradbury. That’s a great quote to remember as I plunge back into NaNoWriMo words.
    Quantity produces quality, quantity produces quality … πŸ™‚

    (I tried posting at your guest site, but my post may have been gobbled up in moderation limbo. Great job though!)


    • Good for you Kirsten! I think it’s more important to just write every single day than use an actual prompt, if you know what I mean πŸ™‚

      Awwwww, thanks honey πŸ™‚ Oh, it’s a brilliant quote isn’t it πŸ™‚

      Oh that’s a shame, thanks for trying though xx


  4. Excellent advice. Along those lines, here is where I have a bit of a struggle. The beginning of my novel is okay, but was written before I found my voice and confidence as a writer. Things smoothed out the more I wrote. Fixing the beginning has been tricky.


  5. It was a fab article. I’m a fan of prompts though I’m not doing them daily. I do try writing daily and I’d like to believe it’s made a difference.
