Imagination sluggish today? Here’s a quick writing prompt from Writers’ BLOCKbusters which should get you writing good stuff quickly. And you don’t have to leave the house to do it!Go to your wardrobe and pull out a jumper at random. Smell it, stroke the fabric, examine the weave, its seams. Put it on. Think about how it makes you feel.
While you are wearing it, write 30 words.
Now write a paragraph of action about something you do while wearing this jumper. Or, if you have an existing character, write a paragraph of action they do while wearing it.
Use these two paragraphs as the basis for a longer exercise about your character.

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.
