Museprompt: Your MC and Illness

This week has been a hard week for me. My dog (child) Raynor was super sick all of a sudden last week. That’s why it was super quiet on this front. I wont go into the details but let’s just say that in a matter of an hour he lost a ton of blood and fluids and we rushed him off to the doggy hospital. He was there until late last week on an IV and a ton of medications and the doctors were working tirelessly to care for him and see what could be done to help him. Thank goodness the prognosis is that he’s showing improvement every day and was able to come home at all. Please think healing thoughts for my special little pupper. Though this is so hard and scary to talk about, I thought this would make the perfect writing inspiration. After this happened I had ALL THE FEELS. So here’s this week’s writing prompt: Write a scene where someone that your main character loves is suddenly and inexplicably very ill. What happens? How does your MC react? It may sound silly but you can learn a lot by how someone reacts when someone they love is sick. Maybe your main character internalizes everything and punches a wall. Maybe your MC blames themselves for not taking quicker action. Maybe your main character breaks down into tears, vowing to be there until they’re better. Only you know your main character best and only you know what happens.   So tell me…what happens? Happy...

Museprompt: Your Main Character, Their Crush, and a Bedroom

Some of my favorite scenes in any books are the ones that are oozing with sexual tension. Maybe the main character finally has a minute alone with her crush. Maybe two people share their first kiss. Maybe there’s an interrupted moment between two characters that you really want to see end up together. I hope you’ve had your coffee because today will be all about sexual tension. You’re welcome. Museprompt: Your main character, their crush, and a bedroom. Write a scene where your main character finds themselves in a bedroom with their crush. They could be investigating a strange noise. Or maybe they’re studying together. Or perhaps he or she is a carpenter fixing something in their bedroom. Or maybe getting that particular person in a bedroom was their intention all along… However they end up there, think and explore how your main character feels. Imagine how their heart races when they realize that they have someone they desire in a bedroom, very close to a bed. Does their heart race? Do they feel like they’re going to throw up? Do they remember a bad experience? Do they remember a good experience? Do they find an excuse to leave or do they just go for it?   I love this prompt because you can learn a lot of back story and psyche from exploring this. I’d love to hear how it goes! Post your thoughts, writing, or a link to it in the comments below. I’d love to read it.  ...

Museprompt: Your Main Character and Regret

Need a little prompting to get you jump-started for the weekend? Here’s a little writing prompt that could push your work-in-progress to the next level! I tried this out with my MC of my current project titled Ruby Rose and I learned A LOT about her as a person. I learned her fears, her limits, and tested her comfort levels. All because I took the time to write a scene involving my main character and regret. Try it out! Still stuck? Go peek at how to defeat writer’s block! You might learn something new.   What exactly did your character do? Did they regret it because they know that it was morally wrong or did they just not like the outcome? Did it put them in a sticky situation? How did they handle that? What course of action did they take?   There’s so many different ways that this prompt can go! This can really help you learn something about your characters, their past and their actions, AND your writing. Now I’m dying to hear. What did your character do that caused them to feel regret?...
