The 500

While bargain shopping over the holidays I purchased 500 Writing Prompts, a guided journal published by Piccadilly Inc., currently on sale for $4.99 from B&

This is a really nice, big journal with 240 ruled pages featuring multiple writing prompts that ask some really interesting questions:

To give you an idea of what the prompts are like, here are a few I selected at random from my copy:

Have you ever given up on someone? Why?

Do you have a secret hiding place? What do you hide there?

Create a new nemesis for Batman. What is the character's name? What is their feud about? Describe a short scenario, comic book style.

If you had the power to make something illegal that is currently legal, what would it be? Why?

Name a weird mannerism you have. Do others notice it? Does it help you or bother you?

Aside from great sparks to get you writing more often in a journal, this might also provide inspiration for posts for your blog.


  1. I love writing prompts, quotes, and word lists. It's like a massage for the brain. The examples you cited are good ones too. I'll definitely check it out.

  2. I love the questions!

  3. I almost picked this up the other day. Now I wish I had. I think they also have a smaller, pocket-sized version that might be fun.
