Writing Promps

Can they help creativity flourish or are they a gimmick?

This is a short post, it’s just to say I went to University today and I’ve noticed my lecturer Amanda Smyth does this thing where she will give us a prompt or situation and get us to write for a set amount of time. She will then give us another prompt or instructions connected to the previous thing we’ve written and that actually helps us to be better writers. The thing is as a result we’re constantly challenging ourselves to write something different. We don’t want to keep writing the same thing, the same story. In fact we don’t even want it to be obvious what we’re writing because we’re attempting to tell a story and this challenges us to use our mind more. To come up with a new story, a new situation and a new scenario. After all practise makes perfect doesn’t it?
