  1. Saw you give this talk today. Great job. I really enjoyed the idea and I’m definitely going to be trying as much of it as possible. Already started writing down some writing prompts for myself. So, thanks!:)

  2. Really like this idea. Creating a prompt box of some sort might do me some good. Because I know I definitely experience writer’s block quite a bit and need to at least write a little each day, even when I don’t feel like it. So thank you because this sounds like a really wonderful idea!:)

    1. The prompt box eliminated writer’s block for me. I no longer experience blocks. If I feel blocked on a specific subject, I’ll warm up with a 10-minute write from my prompt box. That gets the words flowing and primes me for whatever topic I was blocked on. I highly recommend it.

      1. Okay, thank you. I’ll definitely have to get one of my own and use it whenever I write. I think it’ll definitely help me get the creative juices going.

  3. I don’t have a problem coming up with things to write about. My question is always how to keep up with the reading of all the blogs I follow that post every day. They take a great deal of time to read and comment on which leaves not time to write. I don’t have a job, retired many years but there are so many good blogs to read that I think if I post that often, it’s going to overwhelm others as much as me. I’ve already put in two hours this morning. How do you manage that part??

  4. “Perfect is the enemy of Done.” That is my struggle. But I try to tell myself that it’s a blog post, it’s not (nor ever will be) a novel up being considered for a major prize. And I’m sensing that many fellow bloggers are here because they want more than 1-2 sentences (if that) in a Tweet and looking beyond the usual run of FB updates. So a post that was crafted in 10 mins gives a little something more to chew on without requiring a chunk of reading time. Great advice here; thanks, Andrea. I am upcycling a tea tin into a writing prompt box now!

  5. Thank you Andrea! Definitely will try this for my own. I experience writer’s block quite frequently, though most times I have a scene in my head about what I want to write or blog about, but I don’t know how to conceptualize them into words

  6. While I have not actually created or re-purposed a prompt box yet, this post has inspired no less than 4 of my own. (My current equivalent of a prompt box is the numerous drafts of article fragments stored on wordpress or in the Reminder app on my Blackberry or in journals.)

    Somewhere along the way, I had picked up the notion (not really an idea, just a feeling) that my blog posts needed to be perfect before I shared them with. Seeing “perfect is the enemy of done” has been very liberating for my writing and especially for my blogging.

    Getting it perfect has been one of my excuses for procrastinating for so long and now you have taken it away. I both love and hate you for that.😀

    Seriously, thank you.

    (I only see some of my pingbacks in the comments here. What’s up with that?
    Here’s the one from yesterday: https://timgatewood.wordpress.com/2015/12/16/peace-and-irrelevant-opinions/ and I have another post scheduled to appear on Minister Is A Verb (http://timgatewood.wordpress.com) later today. )
