Writing Through February: Prompts to Inspire, Encourage, and Explore

31 January 2018

At some point in Patchett's This is the Story of a Happy Marriage she provides advice for those who wish to write. She encourages all wannabe writers to sit down at your desk without distraction for up to two hours every day.

Eventually you will either write or quit. Writing is something that I keep coming back to. 

It can be so therapeutic and so much fun. It can also be so hard when you read a beautifully constructed sentence and find yourself wondering why you can't seem to create something like that.

Writing is something that I want to keep doing and I want to keep improving, so for the past month I have really been working hard to schedule some writing time into my day. I aim for a hour, but with two small kids and life, I take what I can get. 

If you feel the itch to write, but don't quite know where to begin then this list is for you. What follows are twenty prompts to help you write through the work week.
