In my screenwriting class, we got into a big side discussion about the writing process. The biggest controversy was over whether or not to outline. I am staunchly Team Outline.

The biggest recommendation my teacher had was to write every day, even if only for five minutes. Since actually sitting down and writing is the hardest part – followed closely by “what to write about??” – I bought a writing prompt book to light a fire under my britches.
So, here’s my first use of that book which, by the way, is 1000 Awesome Writing Prompts by Ryan Andrew Kinder.
