I like using writing prompts to inspire new ideas for a poem or short story. Writing prompts are short sentences, bunch of words, or even a picture that encourage inspiration to create a piece of writing. These prompts can be responded to as directed or manipulated in a creative way for a different perspective.
Sometimes these prompts can be used to inspire ideas for a blog. I frequently visit various sites to get such ideas. One idea that caught my attention was:
Think of eleven uses for a drinking straw – except drinking!
So here’s my attempt:
Straws can be useful
more than just for drinking
For one they would make great weaponry
hanging out the window using them as a tool
for blowing small bits of paper as people pass by
Throwing straws up high in the air
letting them fall as they may
playing pick the straw
Connecting straws from tip to tip
piece by piece
in attempts to use for a rope
and when all else fails
to construct a house
much to small
So if you need ideas for that inspiring blog try these websites for writing prompts. Remember these statements or ideas can be arranged for a more creative written piece.
