Do you listen to music while you write? Well today you can use your music for inspiration too. Get working with this writing prompt from Sandra Danby’s Writers’ BLOCKbusters series.
Go to your phone/CD shelf/ i-Tunes, close your eyes, and choose an album at random.
Write the title of the album [not the name of the artist] and concentrate on it.
Now think of five words at random – nouns, adjectives, verbs, it doesn’t matter.
Write a paragraph incorporating each of those five words.
Now write a Flash Fiction piece of 250 words, incorporating that paragraph.

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.
