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

whatever you use – write!

Images and texts to spark your right brain.

Welcome to the Pointy-end.com! My Dad often said of someone, “he/she got the pointy end of the stick” meaning someone had to do it tough,   And writing has been like that for me – batches of frantic writing and then long periods of… nothing.

For many years I spent Friday afternoons at my Wordsflow writer’s group.  We would critique each others work, share things we had learned and each week we spent the last 60 minutes doing timed writing exercises.

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
