Writing Prompts and Communities #SOLC Day 25

I love writing prompts. In my inbox is a daily prompt from my writing teacher Sarah Selecky. I write morning pages every day mostly according to Julia Cameron’s rules. I use tarot cards for the art for inspiration for writing as well. Last night, I even taught a class about writing and included prompts for students and for adults.

During this time there are so many of my favorite writing teachers providing free communities or classes or prompts. Here are a few of my favorites:

Caroline Donahue does an Instagram live every weekday.

Curtis Brown Creative – The Weekly Writing Workout

Sarah Selecky Writing Through Uncertainty community and daily free write

Mia at 12 Short Stories is hosting the Keep Writing challenge (a daily flash writing prompt) and is hosting a Free Writing Course.

Nancy Stohlman and Kathy Fish are hosting an Unexpected Sabbatical and providing a prompt every day. Many of from their coveted classes and are always a great writing springboard for me.

I love Paulette’s daily newsletter. There is always a little snippet about writing and then a one word writing prompt or the day.

Storyaday has prompts every Wednesday.

I am always inspired by the blog structures and formats from people in the Two Writing Teacher community as well!

Happy writing today – there is tons to chose from!

If you have a favorite I haven’t listed – please let me know.

  1. Holy cannoli! What a fantastic list of resources for writers. I’m so jazzed that I am not familiar with many of these and will have an opportunity to explore today (and in the days to come) I’m overwhelmed at times with the generosity of others to share ideas and inspiration. I’m going to bookmark this slice to come back and dig deep. Thank you so much, Tammy!

    1. I have noticed that it does get harder to write morning pages esp with not leaving the house. It allows my imagination to wander in a new way though. I also have a lot of writing I need to get into the computer so the time is helping is for that task!


    1. The Keep Writing flash challenge is nice because you have the opportunity for feedback from the community if you like it. There are solid deadlines there if that motivates you.

      I do sometimes rotate through the prompts that speak to me that day and write for 10 minutes in my notebook.
