 Why use prompts?

Prompts are a great way to explore different writing methods, practice our weaker fields, conquer writer’s block or just think outside the box. They help you to write about different subject matter, explore your creativity and Stimulate your mind. Many times when using prompts, they can become the beginning of a great story that you never realized you had in you. You will be surprised with what you can come up with if guided by a prompt.

Welcome to this weeks writer’s prompts. This weeks theme is “LET THE PICTURE TELL THE STORY”.

Each week I will be posting different themes, allowing you to exercise your writing technics in a wide range of fields. Try and set a goal for each story to be between 750 and 1000 words. You never know, one just may turn into a novel. Have fun! Feel free to post your stories too. I would love to read them.

How to use picture prompts.

Picture prompts are great to work with because they give so much detail. As soon as we look at a picture, our minds automatically begin to ask questions. Where was it taken? what was happening at the time of the picture? Use some of these questions to create your story.

  1. These are really good prompts for writing. I use picture prompts as a drama teacher and the possibilities are so vast. I really want to do some creative writing it’s just finding the time to dedicate to it. I will be checking back to your blog for inspiration

    1. Thank you so much. Disciplining yourself to write can be hard along with finding the time. I dedicate two hours a night solely for creative writing. Nights work better for me because there are fewer detractions. No chores to be done, no dogs to be walked and I’m home from work LOL

  2. Love this! It’s helpful. For me I find it sometimes hard to caption or let the image tell the story but what you just wrote makes lots of sense!

  3. I have never heard of this method! I sometimes get so stuck in my own head when I’m writing an article. I can’t wait to try this. Thank you so much!

  4. This is such a great idea for people that want to write. I’m already short on time since I blog and run a consulting business, but I need to do something like this.

  5. Sometimes I do this on my mood board, and attached some post-it note so I wont forget the possible topic of the picture. Indeed, a great way to exercise writing skills.

  6. This such a great idea for prompting a post. I have never really thought about this before but will be doing it in the future.
