Six Ways to Beat the Block and Get Writing

In preparation of the weekly Silent Writers’ online writing retreat, below is a list of six prompts to help you get started (seven if you consider that offers two).

Feel free to use any of these, one of your own, or work on an existing project.

    1. From Fiction and Poetry prompts
    2. From Writerly Life: A photo prompt, “Naturally Confrontational”
    3. From Verbal VerbosityThe 100 Words Challenge Prompt
    4. From me: A photo prompt, “Running in the Cathedral”
    5. From @Selorian on Twitter: #storystarters
    6. From Plinky: Quickie questions to ponder

      The Silent Writers online writing retreat is open to all writers who want to commit a minimum of one hour to writing.  If you’re interested in participating, join us tonight at 9 EST and PST on Twitter or Facebook.

      For more information, visit the Silent Writers Collective.

      1. Some good links, here, Olivia, glad I’ve found your blog. I’m an East Coaster, am actually in a writing class during 9-10 pm Tuesday nights, so we do write in silence there at times! I like the idea.
