March 2020 – Week 10 Writing Prompts
Inspiration Call: Micropoetry Monday
use this picture as inspiration for a micro poem (a short poem with no particular rules).
Inspiration Call: * Timed Writing *
Choose a set time to write, 5 −7 minutes serves well. Set a timer, watch the clock. Stop writing when the time is up, even in the middle of a sentence. In timed writing, you write for a short, prescribed period of time. The purpose of timed writing is to prime the creative pump: shortening writing time makes sure you have more to say than time to say it. The frustration of stopping creates the impetus to write more. You become more interested in the ideas and thoughts you want to put down and less self-conscious about the times it’s taking to write. This exercise also helps develop confidence and establishes creative tension.
Inspiration Call: Word Prompt Wednesday: Mental Health or any of the words pictured.
Use the word of the day in poetic or short story form.
