Alright my fellow bloggers, I need your advice. I really enjoyed last month’s A-Z Challenge and am already missing the routine of daily/regular writing prompts. I had so much more fun this year versus last. I think this was partly because I selected a theme and stuck to it, wrote every day as instructed, and really focused on committing myself to the challenge versus half-assing it as I did on more than a few days last year. It was productive and successful, and I don’t want to lose that momentum.
I am thoroughly enjoying having more time to focus on creative writing (poetry, short fiction, and my novels) and am eagerly looking forward to getting back into the groove with a local writing group, but I find that having a regular “assignment” of some kind keeps me accountable and prevents me from falling into a funk, whether that be writer’s block or pure boredom with my writing.
Are there any challenges or prompts that you participate in that you’d suggest? I had a few recommendations last month from various bloggers throughout the challenge. The ones that I’ve found that seem appealing are “The Daily Post” and “Friday Fictioneers.” I’m still up in the air if I want to do daily or weekly. I suppose I could participate in a daily prompt challenge and do a post every other day or some modified version.
