Writing prompts for fun and practice – set the timer and go!

Welcome to the Pointy-end.com! My Dad often said of someone, “he’s got the pointy end of the stick”. And writing has been like that for me – batches of frantic writing and then long periods of.. nothing.

For the last seven years I have spent every Friday afternoon at my Wordsflow writer’s group. We critique each others work, share things we’ve learned and spend the last 60 minutes doing timed writing exercises.

For me, for a long time, that 60 minutes a week was the only writing I did – except for NaNoWriMo. I don’t know why. I do know how happy I am that I am now able to write each day. This site is my attempt to help others to develop a daily writing habit and to keep myself practicing.

So, welcome to Pointy-end com. There are images to prompt your right brain as well as traditional text prompts. Also, comments on things I do to get myself published and other writing topics that come up.

Start with a writing prompt… if you’re happy with it, post it in the comments for others to read, or paste it into your computer for future reference.

Have Fun! – Cheryl
