30 Day Writing Prompts to get you back into writing

I don’t know about  you, but I’m loving the summer: walks on the beach, runs along the seawall, evening paddles on the Gorge, and there is always always more to do in garden. The only problem is that for a writer, summer can get you out of the habit of work. I recall a writer friend telling me long ago that the best way to write is to actually sit your butt down in a chair and do it.  Summer has been tempting me away from that chair and the computer screen, but I’ve found a perfect way to get back into it…The 30 Day Challenge over at Galley Cat.  I have to tell you that I’m totally pumped about trying this out. To give you an idea about why you should consider taking up the challenge too, here’s the first prompt.

“Day 1 —Select a book at random in the room.  Find a novel or short story, copy down the last sentence and use this line as the first line of your new story.”

Now that you know how awesome the whole idea is, I hope that the first thing you do in September is head on over to Galley Cat’s 30 Day Writing Prompts for September and get writing.

I’m going to cheat just a tiny tiny bit and hold off doing this exercise until October since I’m helping with my daughter’s wedding in September and  have a ton of things to do not to mention a houseful of visitors.  But, I’d love to hear from anyone giving it a try about how it’s working for you.
