The Joys of Writing Prompts

I've been having a lot of trouble writing lately. This is partly due to school and partly due to the fact that I've been watching a ridiculous amount of Castle and therefore can only come up with ideas that involve a murder.

One night, I really wanted to write so a friend showed me a bunch of sites with writing prompts. I scanned through them until I found one that caught my attention and wrote a short story from it. I love the characters so much that I'm considering writing a whole novel with them.

Here are a couple links to the writing prompts that helped me:

The next time you want to write but can't think of an idea, try looking through the prompts for something that interests you, opening a word document, and just writing for awhile. You never know what might come out of it.
