Each of us needs a little urging at time to write and create. These 20 minute daily exercises will assist you in doing exactly that.

Each day a new topic or thought will be posted. Clear your mind, and then just let all the ideas that pop up come pooring out. You are encouraged to write for about 20 minutes. This will be fun and interesting and may lead to a longer story or even an idea for a book. Have fun, enjoy and share.

The software WriteSparks! is an ideal tool for doing your exercises,  try WriteSparks! Lite for free.


Writing Prompt Topic: Time Traveler


A comatose person might lay unresponsive for days, weeks, even years, before regaining consciousness. And after their sudden awakening, there’s usually a strong reaction among caretakers and the family of this individual.

In your scene, find ways to reveal the future challenges for your protagonist. After all, the newly awakened person has many things to sort out. Time has wrought changes in once-familiar people, places, and things.

Exercise: In 400 words or less, create a scene in which a comatose individual regains consciousness.

In your critique, let the writer know if you found the scene believable. Why or why not? Were you able to picture the newly-awakened person’s confusion? Did the dialogue show you how others felt about the new normal? Were you satisfied with the ending or did it leave you motivated to read more?


Have fun!
