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:
- Write a short ghost story. What elements do you think are crucial for this type of story?
- Have one of your characters make a list. Anything from a list of targets to a packing list. Maybe a list of all the places they have been or want to go. How about one of all the people who failed to kill them? Perhaps a record of each time they have died and been resurrected or reborn. Make it as detailed (or not) as you like.
- You meet someone mysterious who says their name is October. What happens next?
