I’m not sure it’s a prompt, but they say you should write every day. I try, but don’t always make it. When I really has trouble writing I made myself write for ten minutes. Then when that became a habit again I increased it to fifteen minutes and found that I was writing a lot more.
Other people start a new scene and write a line or two so they can pick it up from there the next day.
Here are some of their writing tips.
He hadn’t seen her since the day they left High School.
The city burned, fire lighting up the night sky.

She’d have to hitch a ride home.
‘I told him not to come back too!’
His feet were already numb. He should have listened.
I'd love to hear if you use writing prompts. and maybe some you use.
