Get Four Weeks of Writing Prompts and Coaching.
Sign up for my writing prompts email series. Over the course of four weeks, I will send you one prompt every day. These are designed to get you freeform writing and thinking, and we’ll do some digging into your memories and see what sticks out or first comes to mind. Maybe most importantly, I’ll be that little reminder in your inbox every morning saying, “Hey! Take some time to write today.”
I love writing exercises like these when I get stuck. And if you’re like me, maybe you’ve found that you can get going a little easier with a prompt. You might start out your writing hour/day with a prompt and either let it take you where it wants, or use it as a warm-up for the writing project you’ve got going or are hoping to start.
Each week, you’re more than welcome to email me some of your work right back. These prompts are geared toward getting you to do some personal writing about yourself, and maybe you’re not going to want to share everything that comes out. But if you find you’re particularly proud of something or if you’d like some guidance, I’ll be here to offer feedback as much as possible throughout. At the end of 28 days, hopefully you’ll have the seeds of some great essays or blog posts. I’ll send you a follow-up email at the end of four weeks to see what you thought.
