I’m back! I’ve reached the finish line and my book is now with my agent – phew! I’ve also managed to squeeze in a few writing competitions along the way.
Luckily, just like the lovely Hazel Gaynor, I’m brimming with new ideas. But I realise that isn’t always the case…Which is partly why I write the Wordspark blog for writing.ie…
If you haven’t yet heard of writing.ie, it’s a wonderful site set up by Vanessa O’Loughlin for writers at all stages of their career. Although Ireland-based, it’s suitable for writers anywhere in the world. If you haven’t already, take a peek. There’s so much info on there from some of the world’s top best-selling authors, it’s an invaluable resource.
But back to ideas for your writing…
The idea behind Wordspark is to get creativity flowing. The prompts can be used to fire up the imagination as a pre-writing/editing exercise or to spark off a piece that can be sculpted into a competition or journal submission further down the line.
It’s a little extra help, when needed.
Here are a few of the #wordsparks already posted – take your pick and join in!
Description – ten words describing the sea
Postcard Prompts x3 – Trains, Art and Balloon Sellers
Rhyming Couplet – using a photo as inspiration.
There’ll be plenty more coming. If you find them useful, stay tuned!

Great to meet you on Lynda Young’s blog. This is wonderful idea about the writing prompts. I just tweeted it.
Thanks Carol – I hope some of the prompts inspire you. I really appreciate the tweet. Off to have a peek at your blog 🙂
