Exercise Wednesday: Easter Season

posted in: Writing Prompts | 0

(Author’s note: This post contains religious content. It’s intent is not to push a particular religion’s beliefs on you, but to establish a context for the writing exercise.) Imagine for a minute that three years ago or so, you were just minding your business and going about your life when this guy came and turned everything upside down. When he looked at you, you felt as if he knew everything you’d ever done. And though you should’ve been embarrassed at … Read More »

Therapy through Writing

posted in: Writing Craft | 0

Good morning everyone! This is going to sound really strange, but I got the idea of this post from watching The Simpsons. Yep, you read that right. Particularly, the episode where Marge is afraid to fly and sees a psychiatrist. For whatever reason, that triggered something in my brain and got me to thinking about undergoing therapy through writing. I know it’s about as cliché as “the room was as dark as night”, but in many ways, it’s something that’s … Read More »

Why Should You Use Facebook?

Writing prompts have been a huge help to me and I love to search for them to see what inspiration might come. When I was doing A Story a Week, they were invaluable to getting words in, so I always recommend them to people who may be … Read More »

The evolution or de-evolution of writing

posted in: Writing Craft | 0

Good morning everyone! As many of you know, I’m a HUGE proponent of writing in Third Person Omniscient and formal styles if that’s what works best for you. That thought process recently brought me to another thing. One of the most common things we hear online is about the evolution of the writing process. That’s something I agree with as, for the most part, we’ve grown to streamlining what and how we say something in our stories. There’s no denying … Read More »
