Writers block? Try this…

The other day I found a great post on 43 Folders about “Prompts to Start You Writing.” It’s a fun article that highlights another great tool on the Creativity Portal.

The Creativity Portal has a great tool called the Imagination Prompt Generator. Click the button and get a question to start you thinking – and (hopefully) writing. Here’s a random sample of some of the questions I came across.

  1. One thing I want to accomplish TODAY is…
  2. 10 things I’d like to learn
  3. Name three things you are grateful for.
  4. If I were going to be stranded on a desert island, what 10 items would I want in my pockets?
  5. What do you sense you’re supposed to do before your life is over?

In fact, the Creativity Portal has a whole host of writing prompts here and some good “how-to” links here. For those drawn to the truly bizarre, check out “Five terrible fake LiveJournal memes.”

Also, if you are a songwriter, Mark Lee of Third Day has a great series of articles on his blog, This Guy Falls Down, about songwriting. The first is, “21 Songwriting Hacks Introduced.” You can find the rest here: Hack 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11.

I'm a picker. I'm a grinner. I'm a lover. And I'm a sinner. I make my music in the sun.
