Every November, NaNoWriMo challenges writers and would-be writers to knock out a novel over the course of the month. It’s a challenge I’ve tried at least half a dozen times and completed once. Despite my limited success rate, I always try again the next year, because frankly, it’s a pretty fun exercise, even if I don’t always manage to finish.
This March, NaNoWriMo is hosting a different type of challenge. Instead of using words to meet it, you use pictures.
Called #InstaWrimo, it’s a month-long challenge where you’re asked to post a picture of something different each day. The purpose of the exercise is to “get you thinking about your writing habits and the tools in your creative backpack.”
If you’re missing November’s NanoWriMo, it could be a decent way to get those creative juices flowing again and maybe get some inspiration for the novel you want to write later this year.
Here are the prompts:
There aren’t any strict rules, so you could take a prompt literally or use it to think outside the box and post something prompt adjacent.
Since they have already given you all the prompts, you also have a little time to come up with some creative options for some of the option later in the month. I know I’m personally looking forward to posting that Shelfie.
