You know the drill, write something. Why? It’s a great day to write and I say why not? Write absolutely anything. Try your hand at flash fiction or write a poem. Make an outline or character sketch. Write a chapter, or as many chapters as you can. Nothing to write about? Try making a list of ideas or free-write. Make Wednesday your weekly no-matter-what writing day. If this isn’t a good day then pick another. The important thing is to simply write.
If you feel stumped grab a timer and do ten minute sprints. The first time you do this might not garner great results but the more you do the more you get used to it and your muse will start to shine.
If you would like a prompt:
- It’s back to school time, how do you feel about that? My youngest starts high school so I’m a little sad, a little relieved and not terribly disappointed the house will be quietish again.
- Write a short story about a magic paperweight. What can it do? Why on earth is it a paperweight? Who has it? Who wants it?
- Write two short pieces about your hometown, one from the perspective of someone who loves it, the other from someone who hates it.
