Writing prompts

Following writing prompts given in writing contests is a great way to kick-start some great ideas.

It lets your mind free associate, and provides a springboard to dive into a sea of ideas and images, and then acts as an anchor which keeps you grounded in your association of ideas.

I sometimes pick up writing prompts from random contests, often without even participating in them. I start writing, working on the ideas and images that strike me at that moment, just to see where they would take me.

And sometimes, a writing prompt comes from another blog, like this one.

Works well, especially when I am tied up in that bane of all us writers, the infamous writer’s block!

I love comments, and I always visit back. Blogging is all about being a part of a community, and communities are about communication! Tweet me up @damyantig !
