A Writing Prompt a Day: 6th November #NaNoWriMo

In celebration of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, I’m posting a writing prompt every day on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Here’s my sixth one.



Lines of poetry are amongst my favourite writing prompts. Poetry is the most condensed and concentrated form of literature so each word and line is bursting with the promise of so, so much more. I love this poem by Mary Oliver and these lines, in particular, lend themselves to some automatic writing – 5 minutes of crazy, no-looking back, critic cast out in the cold writing.

Who was standing outside what door and why and what happened next?

Write, write, write…

Happy writing! 💫
