Have you ever seen a professional runner take off running without first doing a few warm ups? Or a famous singer who didn't warm up her vocals before a performance? Writing is no different. In order to get yourself into the mood to write (and write well), warming up those mental muscles can make the difference between staring at a blank screen for one hour and pumping out a few chapters of your novel. These writing prompts were created to help you:
Increase your creativity
Eliminate writer's block
Warm up your writing muse
Have more fun with writing
Some of the writing exercises encourage you to make pit-stops down memory lane, while others stretch your imagination into new dimensions. Some will take you less than five minutes to complete, while others will take much longer. Depending on your writing warm up needs, you can choose which exercise is right for you on any given day. There are no rules to creative writing - except that you have to write.
While these prompts will lean you towards creative writing, nonfiction writers will also see the benefits in utilizing such exercises for outside-the-box perspectives. If you enjoy this guide, please consider leaving a review. I appreciate your feedback. Have fun with these prompts and happy writing!
From one writer to another, Zhanna.
