Roll-A-Prompt Writing Journals

Good Adventures,

Writers, is your imagination stuck? Tired of staring at a blank page? Looking for a new way into your stories? You're in luck! Roll-A-Prompt Writing Journals, which I co-authored are the topic today. Sets of elements plus the roll of a dice = more than 6000 writing prompts per book.6 in all. 5 genres, plus a mashup. Three authors have bravely joined us today. They'll each roll for a prompt from the same set of elements and then write while Lisa and I chat about the books. At the end, you'll get to hear what they came up with. Comment here

And you can join in the fun. Below, I've included the set of elements we used. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Comment on this weeks show 

Even if you don't read either genre, you need to follow Linda on facebook just for her photos of itty bitty and giant dog. But seriously. She's great. Read her books. 

What do I write? Thanks for asking.

A pool of blood. A missing body. A famous brother accused of murder. June Nash has the worst luck. Grab your copy of How to Sex Your Snake today. https://books2read.com/u/bxvJYq

 

And as I always say on the show, let me know what you're reading! My kindle is almost bare.

See you next time. Go read a good book.

Melissa
