Thanksgiving is coming up, and that means Thanksgiving break, and THAT means more time to write!!
Here are some fun prompts to help you get into the spirit of the turkey:
- Dana took a deep breath and shut her eyes tight. She knew it was only a matter of time before the turkey would come to life.
- She looked around, taking in the scene. The whole family was around the table, smiling, laughing, joking around. This was what Thanksgiving was really about. The only thing that could make this Thanksgiving better was walking up the front walk, about to ring the doorbell…
- The turkey laugh manically, stuffing Francine’s face with mashed potatoes. “Thanksgiving, huh?” it growled, walking around the table on its stub turkey legs. “Well, let’s see how you like it!”
- Zachariah always hated this time of year. This wasn’t how Thanksgiving was supposed to be. All about the feast, the shopping, the deals… No. There was more to this holiday, and he was going to show them. He was going to show them all.
- Another Thanksgiving come, another Thanksgiving passed. Every year it was the same. No one to celebrate with, no family to be thankful for, and Jack like it like that. No one could hurt him that way. He liked being alone, and nothing could change his mind. Not even her.
Enjoy your holiday, guys, and for those who don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, have a radical time doing whatever you choose to do. Stay safe!
It’s been a long while, hasn’t it? Well, I’m back, and with some writing tips that I find very useful. These tips can help you write more often and better your writing, to be more and more like the professionals. For those who do not know, I start college in two months, and I will be majoring in creative writing to become an author. Hopefully I’ll learn many more tips in my classes, and I’ll be sure to share them with you all.

I realize I’ve been pretty inactive recently, and I apologize for that. It’s my last few weeks of summer, and I’m out there, livin’ it up!
…Sorta. Mainly I’ve been hanging out with friends and going to band and Vocal Dimensions practice. And, you know, occasionally working on my summer homework. I have a very busy school year ahead of me, as many of you know, since it’s my last year of high school. I probably won’t be on very often, but I’ll try to post when I can. Most weekends, probably.
Thanks for patience, guys. Ya’ll really cool people.
So, we all have our aspirations, right?
Why not put them in our writing?
Seriously. Say you have a crazy dream to be a professional skydiver.
Write about someone who has that profession.
Create a character that is everything you wish you could be.
Let your dreams lie in your stories.
Create a world outside of this one.
Become something wonderful.
It’s hard to write when you’re not inspired. But how does one “get inspired?”
For me, I like to take long nature hikes through the woods or down the beach. Other times, I go for a slow, luxurious bike ride. This is a great way to see the sights and just have some time to yourself. It’s a nice way to get some thinking done.
Reading is also a great way to find some inspiration. I prefer poetry, but non-fiction and novels are also a good resource. And never underestimate the power of a well-written memoir. Sometimes other people’s lives are exactly what we need to inspire our own.
So get out there and get inspired!
