20 free #WordStorms

How to use
Look at the word sets below and choose one set. Without over-thinking, consider the first word and write down what comes into your mind. This may be a list, a stream-of-consciousness pouring of words out of your imagination onto paper, or prose related to something you are already writing. Write until you can think of no more words, you may have 10 words or 50. Allow the words to come into your mind without prompting, they will seem unrelated to each other. Some may be simple rhymes; others may spring into your mind without connection.

Repeat for each of the five words in the set.

Now use these words as inspiration to move you onwards. You should find that your mind has taken you way beyond the original subject and that you write about a completely different subject.

What are‘Writers’ BLOCKbusters’?
I want to help you put words on the page. Those words won’t necessarily be the first line of your novel, or indeed anything to do with your novel, but they will be words to fill that intimidating blank space. And it couldn’t be quicker. Writers’ BLOCKbusters is a collection of three ebooks of writing prompts. Why are they different? Precisely because they are short, easy to use, and flexible. Designed for writers of fiction, any genre, novels, short stories, flash fiction, they are suitable for all genre of fiction precisely because each exercise is based on a subject unrelated to whatever you are struggling with. I am not looking over your shoulder.
