2017 November 30 Prompt

During the 2017 NaNoWriMo event in November, Writers in the Grove members offer these prompts to provide inspiration and incentive to keep you going during the self-competition to write 50,000 words in 30 days. You may find NaNoWriMo prompts from previous years and prompts from our weekly workshops.

Today’s NaNoWriMo prompt is:

The answer to my dreams stood before me. What was holding me back?

If you are participating in NaNoWriMo, or wish to, Writers in the Grove offers an extensive range of NaNoWriMo tips and techniques to help you through the month long writing project.



By Writer’s in the Grove member Patti Bond inspired by the July 4, 2015, prompt “Because.”

Because I want to achieve
Because I want to change
Because I want to get better
Because I need to
Because I want other people to like me
Because I want to be proud
Because I want to gain respect
Because I am special
Because I want to meet goals
Because I want to be me

Prompt: Something You Know By Heart

The prompt is to write about something you know by heart.

Look deep. Peel off the layers. What do you know down to your soul or toes or whatever metaphor you wish.

You may write a personal story or use characters to demonstrate something they know by heart.
