The Heat Wave is Over?

  If you’ve been suffering through this heat then you know what’s been keeping me from posting my daily prompts.

Temps hit 103°F one day. Many other days were 99°F-101°F. Combine that with the humidity and no air conditioning–who wants to be at a computer?

I spent most of my time at the YMCA swimming with our family.

Since it’s cooled down today, I wanted to let everyone know that things will be going back to normal.

How did you cope with the heat?

Be Inspiring

Would you like to help inspire others by writing prompts?

Due to some family stresses I am hoping to find someone that enjoys sharing inspiration as much as I do and co-author prompts with me.

Prompt 18: Writer Interview

Yesterday you had the chance to interview your character. Today is your characters chance to interview you. 😉

Ok. I know it sounds a touch crazy, but with this type of go-go-go writing, you’re not just writing by the seat of your pants for 10 minutes, the seat of your pants is on fire.

Allowing this type of writing to simply move through you can be humorous at the least, fun and interesting, but it can also be very interesting.

“Eh, this sounds akward at best. What would I even ask myself?”

Let your character talk!

Ok, ok. How about starting with:

-Why are you writing my story
-What do you life about me?
-What don’t you like?

Don’t forget to create a scene. Most of all have fun!

Prompt 17: Character Interview

Stuck? Having a difficult time feeling inspired to write? This prompt is all about one of my favorite things to do when I just don’t know what else to do.

Character Interview

Think of a place you’d like to sit and chat with someone if you had the opportunity to do that. Maybe it’s your home office, a library, the park, a beach or a coffee house. Let it be something you’re familiar with and don’t really need to think to hard about the setting.

Now, pour your character a cup of coffee and start talking. Write out the dialogue as if you are really chatting.

Have fun getting to know your inner character. You might be surrpised at what your character tells you… and asks you.
