Becoming aware of our skills and limitations will have a great impact on what we work on.
Writing prompts are great warm-ups for writing. I’ve posted a few on my newsletter, Join the News!
When I write from a prompt, they are the drafts that help strengthen my thoughts to get more writing done on my novel. Though, some do end up being great stories.
I see each of these opportunities as a door opening. An endless void pulling us closer to face that which we aspire to be.
I can look back on these prompts now and see where I need to improve. Where I lack structure. Where I need more description. Where I need to ‘show rather than tell.’ Where I need to remove a scene and add another one.
I can do this now because the more I practice the craft of writing, the better I get at what I do.
