Creative Writing

I love to write. I've been told throughout my life that I should do it more, maybe try to write short stories to get published, etc.

Writing soothes me and gives me an outlet for my feelings. But sometimes I have a hard time coming up with something to write about.

I found a neat website the other day with writing prompts. It's called There are 329 different creative writing ideas, things just to get you started writing. They are completely random, but completely fun!

So, I bought a new spiral notebook and got started. It's one of those things that I don't have to do everyday. But, when I am wanting to write, the prompts are there for my use.

There is also a link on the site called Journal Sparks that you can click on, if you're just a journaler but have a dry day now and then.

Check it out if you want.


  1. I was just telling Dawn yesterday what a great writer you were! I used to love writing, too, but have lost my "touch" the past few years it seems! You go girl!

  2. I'm familiar with that site but haven't been there in awhile. Thanks for the reminder. Prompts that work for me:
    1) A childhood experience
    2) A verse from Proverbs or Psalms
    3) A quote
    4) An unusual news/sports story

  3. Hey Nicole. I was reading another blog the other day when I came across a comment that you had left. When I clicked on your name and saw your picture I couldn't believe that it was you!! I just wanted to say "hello" again! Currently, I do not have a blog, but you can reach me at my email address,, if you'd like. I hope everything is going well for you and your family. We definitely need to catch up!

Getting comments is the BEST part of blogging! Please leave me one, if you want to! Even if you don't have a blog, just leave me an "Anonymous" comment and sign your name in the body of the comment. I love to see who's reading all this craziness that comes from my mind! Have a great day!
