Story Starters: January 3, 2014

StoryStarters by Clifford Fryman: Muses never play nice. They torment a writer with ideas when there is no time to write and refuse to cooperate when in front of a blank screen. It's enough to make a writer pound their head on their keyboard. But even the most fickle of muses can be thrown into a creative frenzy with StoryStarters prompts - a handful of words to inspire thousands more. This full edition has over 1,000 prompts.

  1. Hiya

    Another great post. How are you finding doing the actually writing? Is it coming easy to you, or are you struggling.

    Mine are coming easy to me at the moment. I hope that keeps happening.

    Here is where you can find my day 3:

    Have I told you yet, that I love these prompts.


  2. I'm having a pretty easy time with them. I realize now that some of the prompts have a darker theme to them than I'm used to writing, but it's good, it's taking me out of my comfort zone. :) And it gets my creative juices flowing so I can focus on my latest WIP.

  3. I just realised that last night, i posted this comment under the wrong one lol. It should've gone on your prompt one.

    They are a bit darker, but like you I am finding they are taking me out of my comfort zone too.

    Changing it up is good though.
