How to Use Writing Prompts

Writing prompts are widely used to help spur creativity during periods of writer’s block. Prompts and writing exercises can also be used to develop a daily writing habit.

Writing daily is one of the most important pieces of advice that is given to new writers. However, it’s often easier said than done. Writing exercises take the hassle of out creating a new story by providing you with a starting point. Just put pen to paper, or fingers to keys, and get to writing.

Let the words flow and don’t think about how crazy your ideas are. Just focus on getting words on a page. Save these exercises in a notebook or journal and visit them again when you’re tapped out creatively. Who knows? You may actually find your next big story idea!
