GET BACK TO WRITING


USING PROMPTS

 

 Here are some start lines that can ignite your
writing.

Start with one of these lines. Repeat the line until something starts
churning. Write whatever comes out of your pen. Be courageous, say anything,
from your “grocery list” to “My mother had too much stuff and I
felt…” Write at least 10 minutes or at least several pages.  If you
get stuck repeat the start line.

Time your writing.  I set a timer for 15 minutes, 20 minutes, or 45
minutes. When the buzzer goes off, I give myself a few minutes to complete
the work. If you time your writing, your body will naturally adjust to the
time, giving you a Beginning, Middle and End. If you tell yourself to “wrap up”
at the end of  your session, your body
will usually come up with a great ending line, the cap.

Try timed writing. Do it now!

OPENING LINES:

 

“I
remember…”

“If
only…”

“She
could have…:

“What I
really want to say is…”

“At any
time…”
