I never understand when writers complain about having no ideas for stories. Ideas spill like rainwater out of the gutter of my mind, overflow my psyche and drip like honey from my fingertips… er… onto my laptop where they transmogrify into… um… huh?
One thousand words per day is my goal at present. I hit it more days than not, but it doesn’t seem to make much of a dent in the trove of ideas milling about in my head. I have a glut of ideas and less than burning desire to actually get my butt in chair and write them. Other writers have a hunger for writing itself (some even like editing, the weirdos!) and lack ideas.
Sigh… a rant.
On a related note, I love writing prompts. Not the ones about ‘What I Did Last Summer” or “What Would I Take to a Deserter Island.” I love picture prompts and random word prompts. Skwerly, aka Derek Odom, puts up word prompts on the Accentuate Writer forum writing prompts section regularly. They’re great fun.
Random photo prompt of the day:
What can you come up with?
