Prompts

Anyone know any good sites for writing prompts? (e.g., little exercises like "write about [something]" or "continue from this starting line") They can be general or genre/age-specific, just anywhere that has a decent number of interesting ones. I'm looking to do a little spontaneous writing to see if it takes me anywhere new and exciting. ;)

Thanks!

Holly lilse's forward motion community has an exercise a day, or used to when i was there a while ago. I think you have to register but the address is www.hollylisle.com and you'll find the community and lots of pretty good articles on writing there.

Also isn't there a site with a new word everyday that you have to write about for 60 seconds? yeah here's the link after a quick yahoo

http://www.oneword.com/

I'm sure there are more but hope these are enough for now

I knew a guy who would flip open to a random page in a book, pick a sentence at random, and write a story about it. My friend georgy and I also used to e-mail each other interesting sentences and each write a story using that sentence.

Re: Prompts
If you'd like, I could either email you or post in my LJ the daily prompt from my writing book. Let me know!
