Writing Prompt Page Update 6/17/18

0

Daily Post has closed triggering a surge in prompt posts and sites.  Consequently, I am working to update my Writing Prompts link page. Since I’ve had the page for pages, it may be difficult for people to see the new additions so I’ll try to do an update post as I add them.

A few days ago I added but updated the description today

Ragtag Community Daily Prompts :  a daily prompt dedicated site for any type of writing hosted daily by 7 different bloggers

Today I added

New Daily Prompt : a daily prompt dedicated site

Daily Addictions : a daily prompt dedicated site

Word of the Day Challenge : a daily prompt dedicated site.  Also has a weekly photo prompt.

Swimmers : a daily prompt dedicated site. Scroll below the top “Swimmers” featured post for the community pool.  The daily prompt comes up as the second post.

thehouseofbailey : a daily prompt post mixed with other posts.  Look for the heading “Scotts Daily Prompt Gift”. You may have to scroll down for the day’s prompt.

This, That, and The Other : a daily prompt post mixed with other posts. Look for the heading “FOWC with Fandango”. You may have to scroll down for the day’s prompt.

The Haunted Wordsmith: a daily prompt post mixed with other posts.  Look for the heading “3TC Three Things Challenge”. You may have to scroll down for the day’s prompt.

Weekly Prompts : Weekly prompts that come out more than once a week. (Note: it’s new so not sure how often yet so I’ve put it in the daily section for the time being because it was inspired by the Daily Post closing).  Can choose to use it as a word prompt or a photo prompt.

A Writer’s Life
Monday : Less than 300-word challenge. Scroll down to “JSW Prompt” on Mondays. Gets reblogged on the site if given link.

  1. I feel very over-prompted. Instead of one prompt in the morning, there are so many. I feel guilty that I can’t do them all, but I’m not sure ANYONE could do them all unless each one was a line or two per post. Thanks for trying to keep up!

    • I agree there is a lot. Because I’m involved in ragtag, I make sure to do that one these days unless I draw a blank. But how I used to handle things was if I didn’t like the word at Daily Post, I’d go check out someone else until I saw one that inspired me. I think with so many splitting off from Daily Post, some will eventually peter out while a few will become most popular and the majority will be in the middle. A few will also have a very active community who make an effort to check out other people’s work, not just share their own. Once I know which ones those are, I can direct newbies towards them. That first like or comment is extremely powerful and very encouraging.
