Writing Prompts and Challenges for Bloggers and Writers


As I prep for my upcoming blogging classes on consistent and engaging writing, I thought it would be fun to curate a list of writing prompts and challenges.

Bloggers and writers need some extra inspiration every now and then. Writer’s block happens. Or we just get busy and lose our writing mojo. These writing prompts and challenges keep the creativity flowing and provide some great community support.

Do you participate in any writing challenges throughout the year? Do they help your writing and creativity?

While we’re on the subject of writing prompts, have you downloaded my free 2013 Writing Prompts and Editorial Calendar e-book?

  1. I definitely downloaded your calendar and prompts and have been using it this month. I have drafts set up to post at scheduled times for Feb and March. Woo hop! Followed you from SITS and I’m going to bookmark this page.

    • That’s awesome, Vicki. I’d love to hear feedback on the ebook and how you are using it. If you have posts that you’ve written from the prompts, I’d love to read and share!

  2. I had NO IDEA there were so many options. Honestly I find a lot of them daunting because I”m simply afraid I wouldn’t be able to come up with the material people are asking for and I hate letting people down. I’m going to skin this list again and see if anything suits me. I love your blog.

    • Thanks, Julie! There are a couple on here that are a bit intimidating because of the sheer volume of writing involved, but there are some pretty casual, fun ones as well. I join in on Mama Kat’s only when a prompt speaks to me, for example. You can join in any time, and there’s a nice little community over there that will read your post.

  3. Ya know, I’ve been thinking a lot about your next workshop. I have to double check to be sure it doesn’t conflict with my photo class, but I’m seriously considering it!

    • Do it! The cool part about the class is that you can really do it on your own time. There are certain “milestones” to meet, but it’s over the course of a week and a half. Plus, you have access to the content forever.

  4. WOW that is A LOT of options!! So great to have these in case I somehow find myself “empty”… thanks Jennifer!!! :)

  5. Great post! I am doing my own crazy challenge: the Picto Project where I post some sort of photo, painting, poetry, prose, or other creation Monday thru Friday for an entire year. Whewee! LOL

  6. Well, you know I do NaBloPoMo, but the rest of these were new to me – I’ll have to check them out. I find prompts so helpful, but need to remember to use them more often when I’m stuck!

  7. This is a great list! I so wish I had put my site up on Wrodpress. Maybe I will import one day…one day…I love MamaKat. I have not done it in a while but I will back.
