Now, my list of writing prompts works for me... because I wrote them. No, that’s not the sound of my over-sized ego banging off the ceiling. I’d like you to create your own list of writing prompts and add to it over time. Whether you’re writing a journal entry, a blog post or a book chapter, keeping a personal library of writing prompts will save you hours of wasted time. Use a notepad. Use a digital app like Evernote. Use the back of your hand if you have to... but build your personal library of writing prompts. Start by taking a great first line from your favourite book, writer or story. You could go on to record snippets of conversations, headlines you like and even ideas you come across in great books. Use what works and discard the rest. If you do this, you won’t have to perch yourself over the blank page and wonder if you’ve got what it takes to become a successful writer. Instead, you’ll be able to say, “Yes, I can write!” Want more? Get your free book of writing pro
