“Six trillion stories in one little box – Which one will you tell? “
Writers gotta write! Sometimes we have great days when we can pump out thousands of words some days we sit at a screen that screams at us, “Told you that you weren’t a writer! Look at all that blank space.” and that blinking cursor just mocks us. Sometimes we need a break from our project and we just want a little time to do something different.
Writing prompts are one way to do that, and my husband purchased a gift for me a few years ago called The Storymatic (there is also a set for kids, not so surprisingly called The Storymatic for Kids).
It can be used as a game, to spark creativity in young and old. I don’t own the Kid version (yet) I do however own the original. This handy little deck of cards can give you a mental break or you may discover a great short story, novella, spark a novel or poem. The booklet inside the box offers some great suggestions for how to use the deck in fun ways.
I chose three cards, two gold, and one orange.
GOLD Cards: judge, patient
ORANGE Card: regret
Now let’s get writing, I will be adding a piece using this as a prompt and posting later this week. I encourage you to play along. Share a link to your work, or post it here.
Looking forward to sharing something fresh and new with you!
Do you have a friend or loved one that is a teacher? Guess what this would be an awesome gift.
