Last weekend, we had John Benedict host a session on random prompts. With a list of randomly generated prompts, we have had quite a challenge building up the world that was required of us.
The aim of these writing prompts is to encourage free-writing, a guiding principle at Write Club. This is writing without stopping and without censoring. Writing in this way can help to break through blocks like self-criticism and fear of failure, to find your own, unique voice.
Choose a prompt and decide how long to write – ten minutes is a good length of time, to begin with. You can do more than one prompt, as required.
The prompts can be found at this link.
“I tried taking on 4 of the 6 small creative writing prompts that John gave out. There were some good ideas but they didn’t go anywhere. It exposed the limited variations in my writing.”
