I’m running a day late for Rory’s 24-Hour Question. But better late than never, right? Rory wants to know…
What do you like about creative writing prompts, and do you feel that they inspire you or tire you?
I enjoy creative writing prompts. I’d say that at least half of my posts are in response to such prompts. Plus I host my own daily word prompt along with a handful of weekly writing prompts. So yeah.
I like these creative writing prompts because they exercise my brain, stretch my imagination, and test my writing chops. Plus they’re fun. So yes, they do inspire me.
That said, I do sometimes tire of writing posts in response to multiple prompts and I’ll skip a few days before I get back to it. And, of course, it depends upon what’s going on in the real world, too. The more that’s going on in my OOB (outside of blogging) life, the less time I have to respond to prompts.
Bottom line, I like them, I’m inspired by them, and I appreciate the efforts those bloggers who host these prompts put into them.
