Podcast: Melissa Wyatt on Inspiring Your Writing Practice with Prompts

Mar 14, 2020 | Novels, Podcasts

Into the Words PodcastMelissa Wyatt (melissawyatt.com), a special guest at our Whole Novel Workshop, talks about:

  • How writing prompts can be used to inspire your writing practice.
  • Writing prompt exercises that help you understand your book–even if they don’t end up in the book.
  • The “deck” of prompts she created, and how she uses it.
  • Giving yourself permission to NOT do the prompts suggested at your workshop–if they will derail you.
