10 Writing Prompts to Recharge Your Creativity

We are well into the second quarter of the year. How have your 2024 writing goals for 2024 been going? 


You don’t have to answer. But if you’re feeling convicted by that question – or you’re just ready to step up your writing game a notch, then keep reading.


Writing is a discipline. But it should also be fun. What is one of the best ways to get back into a writing routine or get over a creative writing slump?


By utilizing writing prompts.


A writing prompt can be a sweet little gift to our creative energy, letting us play with story and words in ways we might not have otherwise considered. Even if you’re in the middle of a piece that has nothing to do with the prompt, you might find that breaking from your intended subject into a more playful topic frees your mind up to get back to your work refreshed and inspired. 


In the first quarter of the year, I asked my readers to share some of their favorite writing prompts. They did, and we’ve pulled some of them together below. (If you are one of the readers who shared a prompt, thank you!) Tackle one or all (one at a time, of course!) and see where the writing takes you!


If you’re looking for a re-charge on your writing goals for the year, we’d love for you to join us on June 1 for a free goal-setting webinar for writers. “Take the Next Step” will be a jam-packed session of reflection, planning and learning how to make progress with your writing project or writing routine. You can learn more and sign up here.

Here are 10 writing prompts to help you break through your creative rut and re-energize your writing:

We want to know which prompts you’re trying, what you’ve written, and how it’s going. Post a comment below, or send us a message via the Contact form! Don’t forget to sign up for the free goal-setting workshop for writers, happening June 1.

Happy writing!

  1. My Dear Kate,

    Your ten prompts tickled my creativity quite well,
    the only obstacle is the work in progress which
    takes priority right now, I wouldn’t be able to concentrate
    on anything else, perhaps my age & emotional condition
    influence my productivity, but I will continue,
    see you tomorrow, hasta manana,
