After reading about the daily prompts WP have started putting into the editor on the web version, I thought I should check it out. For those of you who didn’t check (or couldn’t find) the prompt, today it read “are you more of a night or morning person?”
My initial reaction was that’s not very inspiring … I’m a night person – or rather, I’d say I’m not a morning person – so I’d say I’m neither. But once I’d answered the question, I didn’t feel I had anything else I’d want to say. Also, I couldn’t see that anyone would want to read. So I was then questioning whether I would want to work with prompts – it was then pointed out to me that maybe I need to give myself more time to think about the prompt. That maybe inspiration and ideas won’t come immediately I look at a prompt; I need to be more patient.
So now my thoughts are that maybe I need to give myself time to work with prompts; maybe I need to experiment and see if I can make them work for me, but be less impatient and wait to see what occurs.
I’m going to challenge myself to do some writing based on prompts but I’m not sure where to start so I’m asking my fellow bloggers who work with/on prompts regularly for some hints/tips/ guidance etc – all suggestions greatfully received.
