30 Blogs of November: Day 6 – Unprompted

Before I started this blog challenge, I vowed that I would do my best to avoid using prompts. I thought it would be more challenging to come up with my own ideas rather than use one of the ideas listed on a site like Plinky or the Daily post.

Six days into it, I am starting to think that yeah, maybe I could use one or two of them during the month. I have used them in the past and they are a great way of combating the dreaded writers’ block, but I thought that using them during a 30 day blog challenge would be a bit like cheating.  Now I know that WordPress and BlogHer are recommending using prompts and giving some I feel more inclined to use them, but I still want to try and do it myself, if you know what I mean, even if my own ideas end up being a load of rubbish. At the end of the day, this is ultimately meant to be a bit of fun designed to boost my creativity and I’m going to do my best to treat it as such.

In the meantime, I am going to read some of the other blogs doing the NaBloPoMo thing to see what they’re talking about.

  1. We are often surprised when we use prompts. Our writing goes somewhere that it wouldn’t have gone without the prompt. They help us look at things in different ways, and that is always good for a writer. But, like you, I use them from time to time… I still prefer to come up with my own ideas. I love the writing and photo challenges, though. They really keep me motivated and blogging.
