Get Over the Winter Writing Blues

Shake it off. My motto today drives me to the keyboard. Or, maybe you need a prompt – a favorite writing exercise to provide something to write about.

Pick a color (favorite, hated, one from a hat). Then write about it in terms of the 5 senses. List HEAR, SEE, TASTE, TEXTURE, FEELING across the top of your page. Set your timer for 3-5 minutes. In each column, list as many words as you can about your color. Example: Red is a bell ringing, a crown, a rich bon bon, a velvet skirt, and haughty. Now keep going . . .

  1. Love your writing prompt, Pam! And thanks so much for including the link to the picture book submission template…that’s a part of the submission we can get right by taking a bit of time to follow the accepted format. 🙂
