Get ready. Get set.
Go! Here’s how it works: no matter what prompt you choose, set your timer for ten minutes. Once you start typing/writing, you cannot stop to think (or overthink, as the case often is). Your fingers should not stop moving until the timer dings. It can be uncomfortable at first, but I promise that writing like this will get your creative juices flowing!
There are many different types of prompts, and for a wider selection you can visit the Book Nook’s prompt board on Pinterest here. But for now, here are a few to get you started!

Include the following words:
“Menu,” “laundry,” “Rome,” “hospital,” and “hysteria.”
Begin with this phrase:
We stayed up all night.
Finish with this sentence:
I never thought this day would come, but . . .
