Wednesdays Visual Writing Prompt

This prompt makes me think of all kinds of stories. I recommend doing a 20 minute writing exercise with it and see what happens. Even 15 minutes or 5 minutes to get the writing muscle working again.

Use this prompt to think outside the box, to go somewhere with your writing that you had never dared go before. See what kind of magic you can work with that brilliant mind of yours. You are a storyteller so this will be a breeze.

Maybe you could use this prompt to add a scene to the current book you are writing. Maybe you could start a short story that you can give away for free to subscribers of your blog. A picture like this can spark ideas you may never have considered.

The Rules

There aren’t really many rules, just enough to get your blog some attention and get new people interested in your writing or the current book you have to offer.

We will always play (Friday Fictioneers)

Great Friday Prompt to start your day in writing mode.

Rambles, writing and amusing musings

They say it’s haunted. What rubbish. It’s not haunted. I live there.

Sarah has been my friend for years. We play together in the long grass, chasey around the fence and hide and seek in the house’s long corridors.

Sarah asks me sometimes if I am lonely. Of course not, I have her, silly! Is my usual response.

Today, she was crying. When I asked her why, she said she was going away. I didn’t want her to go. She said we were best friends forever.

I play alone now. But I remember her and my laughter fills the halls.

This is a Friday Fictioneers prompt

Christina Hills download offerIf you you don’t consider yourself a “techie” person, the very idea of having a website might feel like a big headache.

Where do you begin? Do you try to figure out how to do it yourself? Do you hire someone else to do it for you? How do you know who you can trust with such an important part of your business?

I admit, I made some big mistakes in the beginning. And looking back now I wish I would have met WordPress expert, Christina Hills earlier.

She is truly gifted at helping non-techies break through the intimidation factor when it comes to websites.

Time for a Website Makeover this Spring?

Christina Hills pen and keyboard
When I meet someone either virtually or in person and I’m considering working with them, I ALWAYS ask, “What’s your website?”

And if the answer is, “I don’t have a website” then I might completely rethink whether or not I want to hire them.

Or if they have a website and I visit it and there are some basic things are missing, again…I might change my mind about them.

Do you do that too (or is it just me)?

People who might want to work with you are thinking the same way!

So if you don’t have a website or if you’ve got a barebones website that you just threw together, you might be missing a key opportunity.

My amazing friend, Christina Hills, is offering a free resource designed specifically to help you design your own website that works for you.

It’s called the Do-It-Yourself Website Creation Checklist.

In it you will discover exactly which pages you need to include if you want to attract your new clients.

And Christina also shares her advice on which pages you can wait until later to create, because she knows one of the biggest hurdles to leap for entrepreneurs like us is getting overwhelmed by too much to do!

Check it out!

P.S. If you need a new website or want to get the one you have producing better results, I highly recommend you see what Christina has to say in her free video and download. What I love about Christina is she makes technical subjects so easy to understand.
