S21E1 – Writing Prompts: Helpful or Not?

If you search for writing prompts in Google, you’ll get hundreds and hundreds of suggestions. They range from silly suggestions to academic treatises. Prompts are wildly popular and common, but are they actually helpful? Can prompts be used to get you published one day?

Leigh and Ley debate the benefits and downfalls of writing prompts in this episode. Leigh takes the stance that prompts are incredibly helpful for those wishing to practice their skills or learning to write. Ley argues that prompts can never really be used in published works and pull writing time away from the end goal. What do you think? Join us in the debate on Facebook.
