Writing prompts can be fun, they can start a poem, or a fiction piece, or a song. Or they might take us on a short writing journey that doesn't seem to have a point . . . but they help us get words on a blank page, and then that bit of writing helps us get into our "other" writing, our "real" writing.
Sometimes, I use writing prompts as writing warm-ups when I'm stuck in my fiction or poetry writing, and after I'm warmed up and stretched out, I find my fiction and poetry a little easier to tackle.
Writing prompts for today:
1. Singing my soul with his words
2. The long stretch
3. Engines rumbling deep underneath our seats
4. The crack of the starting pistol
