Writing Prompt: Making a List

Writing isn’t all about writing fiction/non fiction stories. It’s about making a plan, making a list, and even brainstorming. Taking a break from your novel by making a list, or anything else not related to your novel will actually improve your writing efforts on your main project.

In this prompt just choose a project you want to make in the future – even if you don’t really want to. This could be anything from making a book nook to rebuilding a car. Whatever you might be interested in at this time. Once you have a project in mind, make a list of all the materials you’ll need to complete the project. You could also make a list of the steps needed to complete the project instead. Whichever you choose. It doesn’t need to be a complete list. Write one off the top of your head, this is supposed to be fun not stressful. Here’s mine:

“IT” book nook

  1. 2 Ramen Noodle boxes
  2. Paint
  3. Foam
  4. A pair of toy rubber boots/rain boots
  5. Paper boat
  6. Resin
  7. Glue
  8. Light
  9. Toothpicks
  10. Cat litter/sand
  11. Mod podge

I hope you enjoyed this prompt. Let me know in the comments below.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!
