Although, we did just celebrate 7 years of r/Writing Prompts in July, so there's that? You're a writer and you just want to flex those muscles? If you see a prompt you like, simply write a short story based on it.
Let me explain: when you’re writing a personal essay, every aspect of your personality doesn’t go into that piece.
Readers don’t come away from one thing you wrote knowing everything about you.The deeply personal passages in this book would make you think that you know her, but this journey is only one part of her life.Today, she is a respected memoirist, novelist, and columnist who writes about so many other things besides this one story. Nothing in particular other than we haven't had a contest in a while!All writers experience writer's block from time to time.These guidelines provide a structure that will make the process effective while working on your own.If you are unsure what the results of freewriting should look like, don't fret, a link to the step-by-step example is provided at the end.Until I got encouragement from an editor to write the piece, I didn’t feel it would be an interesting enough story.But more to the point, I didn’t know which personality would write it.If you think you don't have time to write, think again.Every writer needs to write every day, whether they feel creative or not, or think they have something to say, or not.
