Start the Weekend…Write!

Written By: Kari Hawkey

Suffer from writer’s block?  That’s no excuse.

Here’s my advice:  sometimes all it takes is a few words on the page to get you started.  Every weekend, I will post writing prompts to help you get those creative juices flowing.  If you need more than just a kick in the pants to get going, take out your kitchen timer.  Set it to 30 minutes and write as much as you can…

on your mark, get set, go!



by Kari Hawkey

Chose 3 of your favorite inanimate objects, food, or animals.  Now, write a love letter to each of them.  Feel free to get creepy.



by Cynthia Romanowski

Write a personal ad for your main character or a character you are trying to develop.  Who are they?  Who or what are they seeking?  If you get stuck read Elizabeth Crane’s story “Ad ” for inspiration.  (Actually, you should probably read it either way cause it’s freakin’ great).


A word is not the same with one writer as with another.

One tears it from his guts.

The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket.

~Charles Peguy
