Use This Instead of a Writing Prompt

Use this instead of a writing prompt

A writing prompt in my estimation lead to nothing. I’m not a great fan of a writing prompt. Sure, it gets you to writing something. And many people will insist writing something is better than writing nothing. Well, I’m not so sure of that.

Writing should matter. It’s hard work and life is short. What’s better than nothing about writing some text on the “the most fun things I did this summer” as we sometimes had to in school? No wonder we did not learn to write while in that context!

Develop Vivid Characters

  • Are the characters your memoir going to bore—rather than impress—your readers?
  • Are you at a loss—“Help! What can I do!”—about how to make the people in your memoir more interesting?Develop Vivid Characters
  • Are you embarrassed by the “stick” characters you have presented? “She really was a complex person, but I don’t know how to show her that way.”
Develop Vivid Characters is a text and audio e-program to set you in the right direction to write better portrayed and more delineated characters. Your readers will love the results.
