Books Cubed : Roll-A-Prompt Writing Journals

Good Adventures,


Writers, is your imagination stuck? Tired of staring at a blank page? Looking for a new way into your stories? You’re in luck! Roll-A-Prompt Writing Journals, which I co-authored are the topic today. Sets of elements plus the roll of a dice = more than 6000 writing prompts per book.6 in all. 5 genres, plus a mashup. Three authors have bravely joined us today. They’ll each roll for a prompt from the same set of elements and then write while Lisa and I chat about the books. At the end, you’ll get to hear what they came up with.

And you can join in the fun. Below, I’ve included the set of elements we used. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

About melissabanczak

Melissa Banczak has lived all over the country, thanks to her now-retired military spouse. She currently resides in Florida, where she’s a reasonable driving distance to roller coasters in the Orlando area. An unexpected encounter with her daughter’s nine foot boa, Strawberry Margarita, led to the idea for the first book in her June Nash Misadventure series. When she’s not writing, she and her husband run. Slowly. She accidentally completed her first marathon in 2017, when she didn’t hear her husband ask if she’d like to stop at 13.1. She would have.
