Today marks the official beginning of the month of November. If you are doing NaNoWriMo, it is also the official start of the writing rush. I’ll be cranking out words in my novel during the month of November, but for those of you not crazy enough inclined to join in the madness fun, here are some sparks to keep your writing flowing this month.
I found these first two sparks while researching digital storytelling:
* Mix writing with an image to create a piece of a worldwide “ribbon” at Planetfesto The photos make excellent writing prompts for other projects too.
Piclits is another multimedia story writing site that uses pictures to inspire.
Storypraxis is a source for six flash-fiction writing prompts per week — every day but Sunday.
Looking for something a bit more unusual? Use a fortune cookie to inspire a story. Look at the fortune from all angles. Could it be a nugget for a plot? Does the fortune send a character on a journey? Lots of ways to play these. You can find five different lists (sorted by category) of free fortune cookie sayings here.
Fans of wordplay can find inspiration on the Ambiguous words page.
Is there a poet in your soul? Take the Poem-A-Day (PAD) Chapbook challenge.
That’s all for now, my lovelies. I must go back and dig into the writing.
