Weekly Writing Prompts #1

Ever need an extra push with your writing? Writer’s Edit is dedicated to helping you get there. Check out the first of our weekly writing prompts below and get started!

If you’re working on an ongoing fiction project:

Take a small instance or moment within your story – make it big! Explore your protagonist’s feelings deeply, and go deeper, how do they feel about this scenario? What do these feelings reveal about them as a person? What does it reveal about your story or themes?

If you just feel like writing?

Try ‘free-writing’ – our favourite one right now is “I remember…” Simply pick a memory, significant or insignificant, whether it’s a mundane train journey or an epic night of your life, it doesn’t matter – just start writing.
