Prompt #3 from the series

A favorite reason I attend writing workshops? To be provoked to write. Not only do I miss a gaggle of writers sharing a table, discussing what’s working in a piece — but I also crave silent, scratching-story-to-page energy in a group setting. And so often to cue that wonderful drafting, a facilitator will provide a prompt — a question, a what if.

Writers of all types benefit from prompts to add notes, outlines, paragraphs, introductions, dialogue, building diagrams, and whatever creative-else into a journal. For those who could use a prod for a story, scene, essay, stanza, and more, I’ve created the “Welcome to Dreaming” series of prompts.

Prompt #5 from the series

Though we can’t be together in person, I invite writers to allow themselves (or their virtual people) to dream about the tableau a prompt suggests — and to leap from (and even change) a prompt to find their words. A prompt may inspire a fictional scene or help an essayist reflect on how they would react to a suggested setup. And on.
