Download: “The Authors Publish Compendium of Writing Prompts”

Writing prompts are little exercises designed to help a person start writing. They are often used in classrooms to generate new work, but many creative writers use them daily. Often these writers do not keep the work they generate but use it as a way to jump start their daily writing habit. They move on from the prompt to work on longer pieces in progress. Prompts generally take 3-15 minutes to complete.

Why do writing prompts? They are an excellent way of combating writer’s block. For many people they are a way to start that creative fire when nothing else is working. Others swear by them as a preventive measure, as a great way to ward off writer’s block. Prompts are very effective at combating and preventing writer’s block, but they also do a lot more than that.
