Have Your Say: What Blog Series Do You want To See?

Guess what? I’m already planning my third blog series of the year. I’m only half way through posting the first series, Prompt Me, but I am a person who likes to prep and schedule ahead of time.

I have a few ideas that I’m batting around, but it occurred to me that the best people to ask about what content they want to see are my followers.

Is there a specific post you like to see on my blog i.e. my writing exercise posts, or more bookish posts. Do you enjoy more posts about my own books, or writerly tip shares?

Get in touch and let me know. I would love to tailor my posts accordingly.

Writing Exercises

Prompt Me…

I have just finished drafting and scheduling the last two of my ‘Ten Weeks, Ten prompts, Ten Minutes’ writing exercises, and I have to admit I’m feeling a little downcast that it has come to an end. I enjoyed the writing exercises, and it was a nice respite from working on EVO Shift.

I was brainstorming some more prompt ideas when I had a brainwave. What is the best way to allow me to be interactive and to work on prompts that are fresh and new to me? I shall ask my blogging community to create prompts for me.

That is, if you want to, of course…

Here’s what I’m thinking:

  1. Post a prompt you are happy for me to use in the comments below. (Please only offer original prompts).
  2. I will expand on the prompt in ten minutes and post one every Tuesday in a ‘Prompt Me’ post. (Starting Tuesday 10th Nov).
  3. If I use your prompt I will tag you in the post with a link to your blog.
  4. If you want to play along, let me know and I will create a prompt for you too.

Whether it is an intriguing sentence, dialogue, or a unique photo, I’m happy to receive all suggestions.
