• I edit as I write and write as I edit until all the part, all the sentences and paragraphs and chapters, collaborate in holding up the structure of the narrative.

Randolph Lundine Writing Prompts

Writing prompts, news, information, and resources to help expand your writing community, hone your writing habits, and to waste time in a way that feels like you're working on your writing.

Just Write (46)

Tis this season to resolve. Since most of you are resolving to write more, we thought today's writing prompt could help. Craft a list of unusual resolutions, invented or real. Let them be a jumping off point--for a poem, a new short story, an essay--or perhaps the list is the story.

If you are working on a nonfiction or scholarly piece--did your subject make any resolutions? Could you imagine what their list may have included? Was there such a tradition in the time/country/culture in which your story takes place? Alternatively, make a list of resolutions for your project (I will use fewer adverbs. I will research 17th century weaponry. I will write every morning. I will avoid jargon).

If you need a bit of inspiration, check out this great list of unusual resolutions including my favorites from Woody Guthrie: "Don't get lonesome. Stay glad. Keep hoping machine running. Dream Good"
