Do you believe in angels? Do you think that such heavenly beings exist or are your beliefs rooted in what you can see and touch? Do you think that you have your own personal guardian angel who watches over and protects you? Have you ever had a near death experience? Has something ever happened to you that you can’t possibly explain? Have you ever seen an angel? What did it look like? Was it dressed in plain clothes or did it look like a heavenly being?
Use these questions as today’s writing prompt! Even if you don’t think that angels surround us, write a short story about someone who does and why they believe in them. Or write about why you don’t believe in them…this topic could go further and further down the rabbit hole! The possibilities are endless for a great story!
This weekend I am fortunate enough to be attending a two day workshop at the College I attended a million years ago. It’s another writing for children course and I’m very excited to attend; it’s great to meet new authors, have your work critiqued and of course network with like minded people who understand the hurdles of the industry.
I really recommend that aspiring AND published authors take advantage of such programs in their city/community because they’re an excellent source of ideas, education and fun. At the last workshop I attended I was reminded of so many things that had sort of fallen by the wayside and this caused me to write much more diligently. Sometimes we all need to brush up on our skills a little bit even if we’ve been doing this for years.
I’ll report back about what I’ve learned over the weekend and share some tips, tricks, ideas and inspiration with you to help you become the best writer that you can be!
So take advantage of courses, workshops, free events, classes, talks and meetings in your area…it might lead you to exactly what you need to know or to an idea for your next best seller! Happy Writing!
