Conquer Writer's Block: Your Weekly Writing Prompt Fix

Overcome procrastination and embrace progress with these bite-sized challenges!


Hey, y'all, it's officially Hump Day (a.k.a. Wednesday), and I don't know about you, but this is around the time of the week that I start to lose my motivation. Of course, plenty of research exists to support the value of consistency when it comes to goal-setting. Establishing a routine and maintaining momentum makes it easier to overcome obstacles and stay motivated.


But, if you're like me and plagued with the Hump Day Blues, it can definitely be a challenge to maintain momentum, especially when other daily or weekly tasks start piling up and, inevitably, my WIP tends to shift to the back burner. Then, the guilt and feeling mentally overwhelmed creeps in because I feel like I should be writing something.


That's where writing prompts can be a low-risk and helpful tool to keep your momentum going. So whether you're looking for inspiration, afflicted with Writer's Block, or are suffering from Hump Day Blues, check my Instagram page every Wednesday for a new creative writing prompt. Each prompt is designed to inspire and challenge you. These prompts will be quick—30-minute time commitments or less—yet descriptive and are perfect for writers of all levels. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, these prompts will help you flex your creative muscles and develop new and exciting WIPs. 


And to keep myself honest, I'll periodically post my weekly writing prompt results on Saturdays. If you'd like to follow along or share your own progress, feel free to tag me in your posts—I love seeing how different writers interpret the same prompt! 


Remember, progress is progress, even if it's not perfect! You can edit crap all day, but you can't edit a blank page. If you're feeling stuck, it's better to start writing and refining it later than to wait (a.k.a. procrastinate) until you have "the perfect idea."


Trust me, the writing process can be challenging—you might find yourself struggling to find the right words or unsure of what direction to take your writing in. But it's important to remember that imperfections are a natural part of the process. Embrace those imperfections and see them as opportunities to learn and grow as a writer. Enjoy the practice and process of writing, and don't let the pressure of perfection get in the way of your creativity.
