This week’s post is a bit different to the others I’ve written, but that’s kind of the point of #WritingPromptWednesday, to break up the style and to challenge myself to new and different expressions of creativity.
The stench of fish and sea hung in the air; and not the good kind. At Lygon Stormborn’s home in the Muzuban Isles, the breeze…
One of the most important aspects that I’ve found in getting myself into a creative space, is to ensure I have my workspace set up to foster that creativity. Of course, everyone has their own needs, but here’s some of my personal favourites in setting up my writing workspace.
Another Wednesday, another writing prompt. This week’s prompt again has come through Reedsy’s regular email list, which was a series of photos this time around. I’ve been wanting to play with a photo prompt since beginning this project, to be honest, so when this particular image grabbed my attention, I jumped on the chance.
I still find it somewhat astonishing that, even in 2019, blogging for business purposes is still so underused and under-appreciated; especially when the research shows how valuable it is to building website traffic. The statistics themselves don’t lie, and I’ve noted some of them on my own content marketing page, but as we go into 2018, blogging is one aspect of content marketing that’s not going anywhere.
A few years ago I first discovered PopSugar’s reading challenge list. At the commencement of each new year, the website puts out a list of topics, themes and categories to challenge yourself in reading throughout the course of the year to come. I’ve found it a great way to be exposed to new genres, authors, and styles of writing, and so as we enter 2019, it’s time to set the list out again.
With another year down, and another one starting, how many of us are ticking off the things that we didn’t complete for 2018? I went into the year expecting to finish the first draft of my current WIP, and then got hammered by all manner of distractions, challenges, and interruptions, and got nowhere near where I wanted to be.
In October, I started up the idea of #WritingPromptWednesday. The concept was to, once a week, just take a random writing prompt or idea and do a short story or flash fiction piece based on that prompt. The idea here isn’t to be great, or overly polished, but rather it’s to just let the creative juices flow on something without pressure.
The holiday period is coming to an end, and it’s time now to start thinking about getting back to work (if you haven’t already). Here’s a couple of ideas to implement in the early stages of 2019 to have a more productive year.
