On a scale of 1-10, the hardship of getting back to your desk and into the writing groove after the weekend – with its lie-ins, leisurely newspaper reading over morning coffee, and lazy afternoon strolls in the spring sunshine – is a solid eight, right? But sometimes all you need is a little writing exercise to grease the creative wheels.
That’s where Motivation Monday comes in. Nothing too taxing and sometimes even described as fun, it’s just enough of a writing prompt to get pen to paper and fingers to keyboard.
Are we ready?
The following banner is an affiliate one. That means Writing Tips Oasis receive a small % of the sale if you purchase The Novel Factory, but at no extra cost to you:
Have a scroll through the Hot Dudes Reading Instagram (see, isn’t this nice?) and pick a face.
In no more than 150 words, describe that person as if you were introducing them for the first time as the romantic hero in a new romance novel – physical appearance, quirks, personality and a tiny lick of back-story included.
Bonus points if you leave your efforts in the comments with a link to the picture you chose. Not that we want to look at pictures of hot dudes reading or anything, we’re just that invested in your writing. Seriously, guys. Good luck!
