Writing Prompts - All About Books

Here are five writing prompts to help get those creative juices flowing:

1. Go to your favorite book and find the antagonist. Write a few paragraphs or a short story where the antagonist is the protagonist (after all, s/he is the hero of his/her own story).

2. Look around where you are right now. Pick five things that you see and give them a magical power. What do they do and why is that important?

3. Go for a walk ... find a spot to sit for a while and write the description of the scenery. What do you see? What do you hear? What do you smell? Write it all down!

4. Name five animals ... they are your main character's possible sidekicks, what special properties do they have that make them special and worthy to be a sidekick?

5. Name five religions ... how could they influence the future of Earth if one of them became the world religion? How do you think that religion may have changed in 500 years.

Those are your writing prompts. I hope they are helpful in spurring the creativity. Enjoy!

A Bit of Reevaluation

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I figured I might as well throw out some updates. Anyone who has been following along should probably want to know that the first five short stories of the Colliding Empires have been released into a single file called "Volume 1."

Another thing that is probably the most notable is the fact that I haven't written a post since back in December. I've quite noticeably been derailed in both my blogging and my writing. I haven't done much writing at all. I apologize for that, but it is also one of my cycles that I definitely need to change.

The second, and most recent development, is that I've decided to remove myself from Twitter and delete my Facebook page. I felt that most of what was being put out to the internet on those media channels were shameless self-promotion. That isn't really what I wanted those to become. I don't like the idea of hitting people over the head with that message. And, to be qui…
