This post is going to be short and very different from everything I’ve posted here so far. There are reasons for that:
- I needed to publish something, seeing as I missed last week and I don’t want to fall back into the habit of inconsistent, only-when-I-feel-like-it blogging, and
- I want to stir up discussion on this blog as much as possible, and seeing as I have a lot of excellent readers and writers who follow me, I thought it would be fun to get y’all involved in this thing I’m about to tell you about!
So here’s the deal: I’ve been wanting to start writing more for a while. As most of you know and I’ve mentioned here before, writing is my passion. However, it can be tough to just sit down and… write stuff. With drawing, I can force myself to sketch different faces or basic shapes, even when I don’t feel the inspiration to create an entire piece.
With writing, though… it’s not that simple. If you don’t have a book or other similarly large, planned project in the works, it’s hard to just think up things to write about.
I’ve thought about writing some short fanfics to help get the words flowing, and I’ve dreamed up a few OCs that I’ve thought about writing some short stories/situations for. I’ve thought about finding some good writing prompts and writing some short, fast flash-fiction style pieces to publish on here. I’m also wanting to participate in Inktober for the first time this October, and I’ve considered using the prompts for that to also create little stories that go along with the drawings (which I’ll likely be posting on my Instagram first).
But the core of all these plans and potentials is simply – I want to write more.
And I’d love to get you guys to give me some prompts.
Throw me some words, phrases, ideas, scraps of dialogue, anything! If you have a song or painting, a poem or scripture verse, that you think I could write something revolving around, give me that! I’ll be honest: I have no idea what the quality of these things might be, and they’ll all be short, probably a few hundred words apiece. I’ll probably combine some till I find something that inspires me. Some may end up as fanfics 😉 (actually, come to think of it, if you have fanfic-specific prompts, send me those too!! I won’t promise anything, and as I said, everything I write will be short, essentially drabbles, but it might be fun!)
So yeah, give me all your ideas! 😀
(Also if you noticed that I set the format for this post to “chat,” the reason for that is that I’m legitimately curious to see what that is and how it works XD )
