Weekly Creative Writing Prompt 9-23-2016

Did you know that when you participate in the writing prompts each week, you can gather them together and create a Kindle e-book or a paperback book of short stories and then self publish?  

 

As a result, you will then have your first book published with your name on the front cover.  (Note: Be sure to give credit to Writing.com as they have supplied the prompts that I share with you).

 

WRITING PROMPT:

She crouched behind the sofa in terror as a hand came through the window.

 

I am wondering if you are finding the prompts thought-provoking enough for you to start writing a short piece? 

 

Share your thoughts with me.  Would other types of prompts work better for you?  Give me suggestions of some types of prompts you would like to write.

Whats A Bullet Journal and Why It Will Help You

bullet-journal-whats-a-bullet-journal

What’s A Bullet Journal and Why It Will Help You

bullet-journal-whats-a-bullet-journalManaging your time when you work online at home can be an infuriating daily struggle. One day you will be able to keep on track and the next day, every little plan you made for the day has run into a snag or your computer decides it doesn’t want to cooperate with you, maybe your internet provider service is down. 

 

There can be any number of legitimate excuses as to the reason why you got off track but in the end, how you recover is up to you. Maybe you can take a short break and complete some of your tasks in what time is left of the non-productive day or you may have to wait until tomorrow and begin again. 

 

Either way, “DON’T STOP.”

 

You control your life and your accomplishments, so make a conscious decision on “HOW” you are going to get back on track.

 

I would like to refer you to an older post of Donna Merrill’s, “Keeping Focused.” 

 

Donna shares some of her daily tasks, along with some of her interests that she sometimes finds that impose on her working online time. It does all come down to focus and finding the best way that works for you to keep organized, in control and productive.

 

Lesly Federici shares her “One Page Planner” that helps her to stay organized and on track. Also if you ask Lesly, her most important tool that she uses to keep focused is a kitchen timer.

 

While Donna and Lesly’s methods of staying organized and focused work for them, I needed something different as those methods just did not quite do it for me, so I continued looking. I know I spent more time than I should have searching for a solution but it was well worth it.

 

What I found and is fast becoming a trend among bloggers, writers, college students, moms, teacher, etc. in their quest for tracking time, tasks, exercise, tracking moods, etc. This gem I found is called “Bullet Journaling (or BuJo® for short).”

 

You may already be aware of it but it’s totally new to me.

 

I’m certain you have heard of journaling but this technique was created and developed by Ryder Carroll – Bullet Journaling It is more than just a journal. It is a basic analog system that you start with the initial Bullet Journal ideas and then as you progress, you make it more of your own by adding sections and trackers of the things that are important to you. The ideas are endless.

 

After a few failed attempts at starting a Bullet Journal, I now have my first week mapped out and I am looking forward to keeping up with the new system. This is my unfortunate “bad” first start. 

mybulletjournalbeginning-horz

 

For me, what sets this apart from any other journaling system is that I have missed working with my scrapbooking and with Bullet Journaling, each evening I can finish my day with check marks of what I accomplished, what I want to accomplish the next day and use some embellishments and some color and designs.  This also relaxes me, while seeing how productive I was and providing myself a little time with a hobby I enjoy: “scrapbooking.”  This is my second try and I’m very happy with it so far. 

mybulletjournalbeginning-horz-2

On Sunday evenings, I will create a new layout for the next week; either using the same layout as before or by searching online in YouTube or in some of the Facebook groups about Bullet Journaling for a new design that I may like better. It’s flexible. You can add and subtract any section that you need each week or add a new one.

 

A piece of advice, pay close attention to the pens, pencils and markers you use. I started mine off with what I thought was a Sharpie pen but it was actually a fine line Sharpie marker which bled through the pages. So disappointing.

 

There are so many different types of journals or books that you can use. If you are not sure about your commitment to the Bullet Journal, you might be better off to start with something simple like a regular journal, a spiral notebook or a 3-ring binder.

Here are some of the most favorite types of journals that people are buying and using for their journals.

 

This is not a complete review, as you may have noticed but rather just informing you of something I found that I think you may find useful.  I will make a more detailed review after I have used the system a bit more. 

So, I am wondering how many of you have heard of a Bullet Journal and if you use one or may use one after reading my post?  Looking forward to reading your thoughts and comments.

Weekly Writing Prompt 9-14-2016

 

How many times have you sat down with pen and paper or a blank computer screen in front of you and you absolutely had no idea of what to write?
 
Writing prompts take a short topic or a beginning sentence and give you an idea to start with.  Hopefully when you read the prompt, right away you get a visual in your mind and the words start to flow. 
 
Feel free to participate in the writing prompts each week.  I have some catching up to do myself.  Enjoy!

The Benefits of Writing Prompts

Writing Prompts 5 Benefits For a Writer

The Benefits of Writing Prompts

 

Writing Prompts 5 Benefits For a WriterThis past week, one of my readers asked me, “What are the Benefits of Writing Prompts?” So, I thought I would share my thoughts and why I share the prompts with you every week.

 

Writing Prompt Benefits:

 

1. Save your writing prompts.  You never know when you can use them in a novel, a story or an article you may write in the future. Never throw away any writing that you do, even if it’s just a line or a random thought. Some of my writing prompts were perfect to use in a short story and some I still have saved to use for something in the future. Create your own library of your writing to draw from when needed.

 

2. Writing is stressful sometimes.  Wouldn’t you say that someone giving you a writing prompt takes some of the pressure off of you? For that instance, you don’t have to think about what to write. It’s presented to you and all you have to do is to take it and let your imagination run with it.

 

3. Write every day.  Every writer knows that you should write at “LEAST” something, everyday. Writing Prompts also saves time if you are out of ideas to write about. Perhaps the prompt you are given doesn’t conjure up any ideas but it may cause you to have another idea that you can write about.

 

4. Every writer many times always revert back to a specific era in time, genre, social status or location that they always write about. A writing prompt can give you an idea of something totally different you have never written about before, such as writing something funny instead of a mystery; writing about something happening in London rather than the USA; your main character is always a female and a writing prompt may suggest that you write from a male perspective. Take the challenge and write something out of your normal comfort zone. You might find that you enjoy it immensely.

 

5. Focus, Focus, Focus.  Many of us have problems with focus. Writing Prompts can also help with getting in the habit of focus. Maybe there is a time deadline to have the writing prompt done; you would have to be super focused to get it done and in on time. Never accept a challenge if you can’t meet the deadline. You need to protect your reputation as a writer who follows through with projects and “DO NOT” leave people hanging or disappointed.

 

Benefit From Participation:

 

I provide a weekly writing prompt and some of my readers have started submitting their entries in the comments section of my blog. I find the writing prompts at Writing.com (Aff.)  If the prompt I give out doesn’t spark any ideas for you, go to Writing.com and find another one that does provoke an idea to write about.

The Benefits of Writing Prompts

We had four submissions to the writing prompt for August 25, 2016 <<<<<<

 

I am hoping that this will pick up and we will have more submissions each week. I do have to admit that I have not been able to add my versions of the writing prompts. Many of you know of my home situation and I have limited time online but I will be back online full time soon.

 

Just a little reminder note that when you submit your writing to the comments section of my blog, you will still retain the rights and I will not take that away from you if you post it for everyone to read.

 

I have noticed many times while writing with a supplied Writing Prompt, that I will have other ideas pop into my head. Don’t lose that opportunity to quickly write that thought down. You may ask “But wouldn’t that interrupt my focus?”

 

“Yes, it may for a few minutes. But how many times have you had a thought and you told yourself you would remember it and you didn’t?” Take the few seconds to jot down some words that you will recall later on. Don’t stress about writing details of a fleeting thought right now. Get back to writing from the Writing Prompt you were given and then add more notes to the thought you had while writing.

 

So, I trust that this will answer some of your questions about “The Benefits of Writing Prompts.” If you have any other questions, I would be happy to try and answer them for you.
