303 Writing Prompts: Ideas to Get You Started by Bonnie Neubauer
“Don’t stop and think about it, just write.”
—from the introduction
Writing is many things. It can be a way to express our deepest feelings and greatest yearnings, or illuminate the mysteries of human existence. It can also, of course, be a lot of fun. Sometimes the best way to get started writing is to just get started and see where it takes you. This book will show you how!
With 303 Writing Prompts, author Bonnie Neubauer (The Write-Brain Workbook), provides hundreds of easy exercises that will get your creative juices flowing. Neubauer’s prompts include everything from the first line of a story that you must finish, to simple sparks of inspiration. Her thought-provoking and sometimes whimsical prompts include:
- Write a magical love story in which the image of Lincoln on a five-dollar bill winks at a woman.
- Write opening paragraphs for four different stories that each start with the same question: “Why did you do that?”
- Write a dialogue-only conversation between two people where each line of the dialogue is no more than five words. Fill an entire page with it.
- Finish this story: “They had wanted a boy.”
Whether you’re a full-time, part-time, or aspiring writer, 303 Writing Prompts
will get you writing again.
