Writing Prompts

Hey Writers! On my personal blog Dreamer’s Dreams I sometimes post writing prompts which I came up with myself. I decided to post them on here if any of the writers out there need inspiration.

That’s all for today’s post. I hope you guys liked the prompts! If you use any of the prompts, you can link them in the comments so I can read your work. Thanks for reading!

Why Writers Should Have Diverse Interests

Hey Writers! I hope you are having a great day. Today I am going to be talking about why we as writers should have diverse interests.

Think about your favorite books, think about the characters. Let’s take Harry Potter as an example (since I know that we have a ton of fangirls out there). The three main characters: Harry loves spending time with his friends, doing fun spells and playing Quidditch, Ron loves eating sweets, and cheering for his favorite Quidditch team, Hermione loves reading, studying and helping her friends. As you can see the characters have diverse interests.

J.K Rowling could not have created such characters without putting in a little bit of herself into every one of them. She could not have written such an amazing story without having experienced new things. As growing writers we need to get out there, take risks and do new things. When you get out in the world and really look at it, notice small details, it will bring your writing to a whole new level. I guarantee you that you will not regret it. I know that all writers like to do something other than writing. Some of my hobbies other than writing are doing arts and crafts, playing the piano, listening to music, traveling and blogging.

Back in March me and my family went to Redwood Forest, California. It was so beautiful and inspiring. Something sparked inside me, an idea! As I thought about it, it grew and I’ve started planning it. Ideas don’t come out of nowhere, they come out of experience and adventure.

You’re painting and when you finish, you look at it and think “Hey! That would be a really nice book cover!” or you’re practicing your instrument, and you listen to this piece which sounds like a perfect theme song for the story you are writing. Inspiration comes from trying new things.

I hope you writers take this as a lesson and go into the world and try new things. You are capable of things you didn’t even know of. Have great experiences and if they don’t go well, learn from them. Your experience may just turn out to be one of the most beautiful moments of your life.

Blackout Poetry and How to Write it

Hey Writers! Today I am going to be telling you guys about blackout poetry. Here is a picture to help you see what it looks like:

I stumbled across this kind of poetry when I was doing a school project and I loved it so much! I am going to teach you how to do it, Here we go:

Step 1

Find some old newspaper, magazine or a page from an old book.

Step 2

Circle a word or phrase that stands out to you and circle other words in the page that go with it.

Step 3

Outline the words with black sharpie or any other black marker or pen of your choice.

Step 4

At this point you have two choices, you can either just color over the rest of the words like in the example or you can turn it into a picture like me.

 

It says: A sense of pride will tell you, the years point towards the front.

Your poem may not have correct grammar, but you can change that. This doesn’t even have to be a poem, it can be a sentence in your story too. I think this is a great way to stretch your creative muscles, it can also help you get over writer’s block. This is a lot of fun, there are a million possibilities. Here are a few pictures to get inspiration-

(The first two are mine)

A journey open to nowhere, make it home.
Sense the want to do good, many have had a desire.

Have a nice day!

The Phoenix

With wings of orange and fiery red

through good and bad, it has bled

The phoenix has fire in it’s veins

all magical creatures it reigns

Mighty and Brave

It’ll light up the dark cave

Inside of you,

You just have to let 

the phoenix through
