How it works

Welcome to this weeks 7-day writing prompts for writers. This weeks theme is all about “EMOTIONS.” Using emotions in your story adds depth to the current scene and allows the reader to identify with the character. Give reasons why the character is feeling this way prior to the actual emotion.

If a woman is feeling heart broken because of a broken relationship. Describe the relationship prior. Build up to the emotion, so the reader can relate to the way she is feeling and why.

If a person is feeling guilty. What were the previous actions? Accidental, spontaneous or deliberate. Did the character have any premeditated thoughts?

You get the idea.

When describing the emotions of a character, choose your words wisely and carefully. Emotions are best described with the usage of body language and facial expressions.

“Holding her head high, her back straight as an arrow, she walked toward the microphone owning the stage. Her stride showed confidence and power. With a warm smile, she looked directly at the audience. She showed no weaknesses. All the grueling hard work had finally prevailed and she was proud of her accomplishments. This was her moment. ”  


 Why use prompts?

Prompts are a great way to explore different writing methods, practice our weaker field, conquer writer’s block or just think outside the box. Write about different subject matter, explore your creativity. Stimulate your mind. You will be surprised with what you come up with if guided by a prompt.
