I had a kind of… well honestly kind of a boring post planned for today, because I couldn’t think of anything… well, interesting.
Fortunately, I scrolled through my feed for a while before knuckling down and writing that boring post, because I found an AMAZING list of 50 writing prompts over at NowNovel (a lovely blog, by the way, which you should totally check out).
What sets this one apart from all the other prompt lists out there is that the exercises are organized into sections based on the element of writing it will help you develop:
- Mastering POV
- Creating compelling dialogue
- Crafting vivid setting descriptions
- Creating interesting characters
- Creating strong story openings
- Mastering tense
- Crafting more effective sentences and phrases
- Finding story ideas
- Creating eventful plots
- Crafting satisfying story endings
Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it?
What’s more, after every exercise there is a “why” section, explaining how this prompt will help you grow in writing ability.
I don’t know about you, but that’s exactly what I like to see, and I’ll definitely be working through this list. Here’s the link:
Hope you enjoy it!
