Writing prompts and exercises can be the perfect way to move your writing project forward. Some of our members have shared their favourite writing prompts to spark your creativity.
Fold a piece of lined paper in half, lengthwise.
List ten nouns on left side of the fold, starting at the top line and then every other line.
Turn it over so you can’t see the nouns and make a list of ten verbs on the right side of the page, starting on the top line and every other line.
Open the page and make sentences or one long one, connecting nouns and verbs opposite.
Useful when stuck or when beginning, especially if you use words connected to subject of poem or story.
