Writing is a practiced art that demands time. The great writers of the world tend to make it look easy, and while one of you might be destined for greatness as well, chances are you’ll need hours upon hours of practice.

Octavia Butler is one of my favorite authors. She masterfully comments on slavery, racism, and human perseverance with bizarre characters and plots. She said this about the writing craft:

“You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it.

That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.”

Write every day. It hardly matters how much or the project. Consistently put words to a page and you will grow.

Hopefully these writing prompts will help you in your daily practice or even spark ideas for scenes in your stories or novels.

Happy Writing!
