Writing Sparks: March 2013

The start of a new month means a new edition of writing sparks to inspire you to tackle new writing projects. What will you work on this month? New queries? New stories? Use these ideas as jumping off points.

Query Spark…

September is the month at the top of the minds of editors working with a six-month lead. Consider pitching articles about banned books (Banned Books Week is the last week of September). National Dog Week (U.S.) and Grandparents’ Day take place in September, too.

Character Spark:

He kept the secret to his success corked inside an amber bottle stowed beneath his mattress.

Setting Spark:

A foggy waterfront.

Story Spark:

Start your story with your character opening the door to find an unwanted guest standing on the doorstep. What happens next?

Fun Spark:

Make your list of how to be perfect.
