Daily Inspiration

:iconthe-poetry-cafe: has a 100 theme challenge on their front page.

Dirty Haiku Silly Generator Worth a :giggle: and maybe a little inspiration. Site seems to not be actively running.

:iconsixwordstories: <-This group is always running with prompts and ideas for something short to write.

:iconthe-haiku-club: & :iconhaiku-writers: <- Two great groups to watch if you're getting serious about Haiku writing. A great place to submit any haiku you write for this project that you are particularly proud of (but don't share them all! We want some new poetry to read come 2014 when we all swap!)

:icon100themewriters: <- Not a super active group, BUT, several members have put up their "100 theme" lists so there are plenty of little ideas to sort through.

Per The Wiki Master - Fragments
Literary fragments may comprise[1]:
works inadvertently left unfinished or never completed by their authors
surviving extracts of larger works subsequently lost as wholes
works deliberately constructed as fragmentary pieces
The deliberately undeveloped literary fragment played an especially important role in literary Romanticism. German literature of the Romantic period has left many such fragments. In English literature, note Coleridge's unfinished (but published as a fragment in 1816) "Kubla Khan; or, A Vision in a Dream: A Fragment" .

Join a Word War! Word WarsWord Wars Chat Tour |  Word Wars | Chat Tour Schedule
What is a Word War?
It's a friendly competition to see who can write the most in a set period of time. This can be over the course of a month with daily interval updates, or over the course of a few minutes with instant results.
In a chatroom setting the game is fast paced fun with the timer set to a few minutes and participants compete in several rounds. Speed writing is key!
This is the standard way the Chat Tour hosts a Word War. If you are hosting your own Word War game you can modify these rules and timers for your own purpose, but be sure to inform all participants of the variations before you start!
Step by Step Instructions:
1. The host will tell everyone to prepare for the round, and allow a minute or two for participants to open their word proc

Creative Writing Now A great external link (which was featured on Oprah, no joke) of prompts.

:iconprojectdfc: and :iconformfindsfunction: both have great resources on forms (and new structures you can try out!)

One Word a great website which prompts you with a word and gives you 60 seconds to write about it. Suggested by :icondawn181:

"If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories — science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." ― Ray Bradbury








Hello fellow Glory Be's :heart:

It is here: That last month. Those final thirty-one days. December.
How is everyone doing? Still going strong? Are you going to make it?

I know I certainly had my up's and downs these past months, some days I didn't get much more on paper but an opening line, or just a vague idea. The only remedy I found for myself? Keeping two journals, a physical one and a digital - so no matter what the occasion; if inspiration hit me, I got to scribbling, or typing, like crazy.

So, what do you all do to keep the creative juices flowing?
(Besides DrippingWords collecting titles and examples of brilliant works, and me pestering you lot with photo's and music?)

Send tips this way - I'll accumulate them in a journal - so that we can give each other a pep-talk to finish this year-long race :la:

Lots of love,

Can I submit things I wrote before I joined the group?

If I can, where would I submit the piece?
vespera Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Each month we open a folder specific to that month for new writing only. Hopefully you'll participate in trying to write daily! :)

Hello, everyone, just wanted to stop by to say I can't do this anymore! School ended but summer school began and there is a ton of drama in my life. I really wanted to see this 'tiil the end of the year, but apparently not. I hope to stop by again next year, and good luck to all of you, I hope you can continue your awesomeness!

Thanks for dropping a line :)

Know that you can always pick up were you left off later this year - it is the aim to write every day, but there is no rule for stopping for a while and coming back again (:
There are also many who only discover this project half-way through the year, and start from there.

Good luck with you busy life for now - hopefully we'll see you back again :heart:
darkskiesangel Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Great! I'll try and start again when everything settles down.
Lady-Yume Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014   Writer
Sounds like a lovely plan :heart:
