January 2020 – Week 5 Writing Prompts
Inspiration Call: Micropoetry Monday

Inspiration Call: Write about a unique first kiss.
Is it your main character’s first kiss ever, or just first kiss with this other person? Does the kiss happen organically, or is it “staged” What are the ages of the two kissers? Who initiates it? In addition to describing the situation, try to describe all of the senses—not just feel. How do the kissers’ breath smell? How do their mouths taste? Do either or both of them have their eyes open? As they kiss, what interesting things are they hearing?
Inspiration Call: Word Prompt Wednesday: Eyes

Inspiration Call: Character Development Thursday

Inspiration Call: Stranger Conversations
Start the first line of your poem with a word or phrase from a recent passing conversation between you and someone you don’t know.
Inspiration Call: 6 Word Story
Tell the story behind this picture in just 6 words. A Six Word story is a challenge for each writer to come up with a short story within six words.
Inspiration Call: * Timed Writing *
Choose a set time to write, 5 −7 minutes serves well. Set a timer, watch the clock. Stop writing when the time is up, even in the middle of a sentence. In timed writing, you write for a short, prescribed period of time. The purpose of timed writing is to prime the creative pump: shortening writing time makes sure you have more to say than time to say it. The frustration of stopping creates the impetus to write more. You become more interested in the ideas and thoughts you want to put down and less self-conscious about the times it’s taking to write. This exercise also helps develop confidence and establishes creative tension.
