Writing Prompts 10.16

Every week you’re invited to join me in Writer’s Workshop by responding to one of the provided writing prompts posted each Tuesday. The directions are simple:

    • Choose a writing prompt from the list provided that inspires you most.
    • Write.
    • Come back this Thursday and paste the URL from your post into the list of links that will be displayed…this way anyone can click on your post thumbnail and head over to your place to see what you wrote.

To view more detailed instructions on how this weekly meme works, check out the Writer’s Workshop FAQs.

Writing Prompts:

1.) What’s broken?
2.) If humans were a dog breed, what would your mother be and why?
3.) List six blog designs that inspire you. What is it you’re drawn to?
4.) Share a favorite fall recipe!
5.) Someday I am going to ______________. (Inspired by Marcy Writes)

Some Favorite Entries From Last Week:

” I look up what seems like only seconds later and realize, it is now 1:30 and I have wasted an hour of precious nap time, watching The Backyardigans.” –The Spit Up Chronicles

“”Damnit, I don’t want one after I finish my dinner (like that’s going to happen). I want one now. Maybe she’ll cave on M&Ms” –The Life of Jamie

“Because to listen to what he was saying is to hear that if we are not perfect, if we don’t squeeze ourselves into the confines of what others think is “right,” we are not “good enough”.” –Back To Allen

“The kids pull out a strand of “hair” from the pumpkin and what color is at the end of the sucker determines what prize they will get.” –Not Just Another Mom of Twins

See you Thursday!

PS Instead of occassional Bonus Vlog Options I’ve decided to team up with the MomPulse Network on YouTube to host a separate link up SOON on Wednesdays with video prompts to respond to. It will operate exactly like Writer’s Workshop (but will not replace Writer’s Workshop) only it will be a “Vlogging” workshop and our links will go to our YouTube channels as opposed to blogs. The goal is to help one another grow our communities on YouTube by offering comments, views, and ‘likes’ on the videos themselves. If you’re interested in getting started in video or just need some additional support, this will be a fun link up! MomPulse has offered to create a playlist on the MomPulse channel featuring all of our videos in each link up for additional support. Stay tuned for more info!

You can subscribe to a separate newsletter for Vlogging Prompts and up to date information on that link up here if you’d like. Or just reply to this email and let me know you’d like to be added to the Video Prompt list.

Nothing about Writer’s Workshop will change, so if video is not something you’re interested in, no worries, we’re still writing our hearts out for Thursdays!
