Writing A Prompt

Writing A Prompt

Writing a prompt doesn’t require a professional assistance or an artistic bend. Writing prompt is just selecting a topic for your convenience about which you write down your thoughts.

It has various forms:

  • It can be a particular word, a petite expression, a whole statement or even a picture, with an intent to provide you something to concentrate on.
  • It is advised to stick to the prompt or you might end up being nowhere. If you work properly and diligently, something that you came up with as rough, meaningless can end up being something more refined and comprehensive.


Here are a few reasons to write a prompt:

  •  At times it is tough to begin inscribing when we just have a blank sheet of paper in front of us. Converging your attention on a separate prompt for a while would enable you to refresh your creative side. Then if you go back to the piece you intended to write, it would be an easier scenario for you to complete.
  • The response that you provide for a particular prompt might in itself, prove to be a valuable material in their own respective ways. That particular prompt can act as a trigger for you to come up with more budding topics to work upon as well as fresh ideas for the ones you might be currently working on.
  •  It is always said: “Practice makes a man perfect”. Likewise, regular touch in writing a prompt ensures the habit of writing in an individual. Plus, it also works as a sort of exercise routine, so that it becomes easier and easier for you to write more and more.
