writing prompts for writers & authors this weeks theme RESCUES. How it works.
Welcome to this weeks 7-day writing prompts for writers. This weeks theme is all about “Rescues.” Writing about this theme is great practice for incorporating action and drama into your works. Most rescues involve suspense, anticipation, courage and most of the time a huge sigh of relief when the rescue is successful. You want to make sure the reader is feeling all of these emotions while reading your piece.
Why use prompts?
As strange as it may seem, one of the best methods to help with writer’s block is to just write. Break yourself away from your current project and write outside the box. Explore different subject matter, avenues you not have ventured in yet. You will be surprised by how much it helps.
Prompts also help to stimulate the mind and get those creative juices flowing. Once given a subject, you’ll be surprised by what you can come up with.
Welcome to this weeks Monday’s weekly 7 – day writer’s prompts. This weeks theme is “ALL ABOUT RESCUES”.
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.
This week prompts – “All about RESCUES.”
MONDAY – A woman is rescued from a burning car.
TUESDAY – A hiker is stuck on the side of a cliff and a helicopter is used to rescue him.
WEDNESDAY – Two skiers are lost in an avalanche. Describe the search and how they were found.
THURSDAY – A roller coaster ride malfunctions, leaving adults and children stuck until they can be brought to safety.
FRIDAY – A woman is rescued from a burning building.
SATURDAY – A young boy is carried away by a riptide and rescued by a lifeguard
SUNDAY – A distraught man needs to be convinced, not to jump from a high rise building.

I’ve been having problem on topics to write on my other blog and now I realized how prompts help. It has been weeks since I updated that blog.

I think using prompts for writing is so much fun! There is so much creative energy that can come from it.
Exactly. That’s why it’s great to use them.
We live near several large theme parks, so when the attractions break down it ends up plastered on our local news. Thankfully, most of the time no one is hurt. I have been stuck on rides with rather annoying music, but that’s it.
Oh wow! that would scare me! Does it happen often? Glad no one was hurt.
These prompts are great. Thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome and thank you
