Inspiration: Wednesday Writing

Every week, Swindon FreeWriters has a Wednesday Writing prompt. It can be a phrase or an image, but the idea is to get you writing…anything! It can be a 100-word story; it can be a poem; it can be the trigger for the next section in your stalled novel; it can be for the plot of your next work. Sit down and write whatever comes out of your head!

It’s mostly me who does them, and the images are ones I’ve found over the years (all credited, thankyouverymuch – I appreciate content creators as much as the next writer!). I usually make up the phrases based on things I’ve read, seen, am thinking about…

It’s quite fun and is a little creative exercise for me at the beginning of each month. I want to do something with the prompts and FreeWriters – I keep meaning to start a forum post for them and also join in myself with writing, but Wednesday always seems to pass without me actually writing anything… *sigh*

But the inspiration’s up there for anyone to use, at least! Go and check the series out and see what you can find to inspire you!
