5 Writing Prompts For Romance Writers

I’ve talked before about the art of keeping a writer’s notebook  and how using prompts as an exercise can really build a writer’s creative muscles.

Sometimes inspiration pours out of us and sometimes it doesn’t. Our muses can be fickle beasts.

Writing prompts are a great way to keep us company while we are in a rut and hopefully help us out by sparking a great idea or giving us a starting off point for a story.

    I was never much of a prompt writer until I started playing with flash fiction.


    • It’s my go to source for placing me into a scene when I practice my short stories…. Which I still suck at by the way :-/

      On a side note: Glad to see you survived your trip to Disney 😉

        I did survive with minor sunburns. Romance short stories are practically impossible to pull off well.


      • winterbayne says:

        Ohh and how is RWA treating you? 🙂


      • So far so good. Got my first monthly magazine which I liked. I think they come once a month. There is a class I’m interested in but its going on right when my in-laws are in town so I don’t think I’ll catch that one. I still need to spend time on the “networking” side but I’m liking it more then I did in the beginning.


      • winterbayne says:

        Most online classes are not very demanding. Depending on how long your inlaws are in town, you can still pull it off.


      • Could you send me an email describing what its like? For instance, with your class did you guys meet up online at a certain time or was it just a forum style where you check in, participate in the conversation, do the assignment and get feedback?

        will do give me a few minutes.
