Daily / Weekly Prompts

At some point, we all run dry on ideas.  Fatigue and stress contribute, sometimes it just happens.

That’s when it’s great to have some resources to turn to, where someone else has written out a list that you can scan until you find something that appeals.

Here’s a list for your back pocket of things I’ve found out on the web that has daily or weekly posting of prompts to peruse:

Marc and Angel Hack Life – these are not prompts, but they post lists weekly of things to think about, any of which could be fleshed out in a blog entry

95 Questions to Help You Find Meaning and Happiness

The One Minute Writer – posts a word each day; there is a timer on the site to use as encouragement that for 60 seconds, you can do it

KittyHere or There, Anywhere – check the tabs at the top

A to Z Challenge – post daily in April, using a word of your choice for the letter of the day

A River of Stones – January challenge to notice small things in life; could be used anytime though

The Daily Post – it doesn’t look like they are doing this in 2012, but the old prompts are still there to look at

Let me know if you have others to recommend!

    No suggestions, but I do have a vote for your suggested site: A River of Stones. Their prompt, Notice the Small Things in Life, was the impetus for my post yesterday. I’m so glad you are doing this for us!
    Thank you, Lynda

      Thanks for highlighting it in your comment. It was actually on the list, but apparently not high enough up.

      The encouragement of yourself and others has really helped motivate me to do this. THANK YOU.

    This is what I like about your blog especially….you are a wealth of information and you generously give freely of your time and efforts to direct readers in finding interesting content. You have nothing to gain by doing this, yet you still do it. I appreciate you.

    I may have to check some of these out.

    I totally “get” this one!
    I hit the wall on a regular basis, but I don’t like to deviate too much from the norm. Still, your reasoning is valid – and helpful!
