Starting Sparks

Are you a writer, blogger or generally interested party?

Starting Sparks is a link-up co-hosted by Ashley from [insert title here] and myself. Here's how it works:

1. On the first of each month (or sometimes the second if I'm not doing well at the scheduling lark) we post a prompt.

2. You read said prompt and it starts a spark for an idea.

3. You write something -- a short story, scene, snippet, poem, idea, whatever the heck you want -- inspired by said prompt.

4. You post it, along with the button, and add yourself to the link-up.

5. You bounce round other people's posts.

6. A marvellous time is had by all.

I find Starting Sparks really helpful for channelling my creativity in new ways. Sometimes I get stuck in one particular genre/voice/mood, so it's good to force myself to think outside the box. And I can testify that I've currently got three novel ideas (and counting) bouncing around my brain, based on Starting Sparks stories.

Help! I'm not a writer!"

It doesn't matter!

You don't need to be a novelist" to take part. Anyone at all can join in -- we're just interested in sparking some ideas. 

"There are a thousand thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up the pen to write." -William Makepeace Thackaray:

Above all, we hope you have a great time!
