500 Science Fiction Writing Prompts

I’m a very talented writer – according to my many ghostwriting customers and the Amazon reviews on books that I’ve written.

But having the talent to write is not always enough…

I cannot tell you how many hours I’ve spent staring at a blank computer screen trying to figure out what I was going to write next…

All that time not writing, banging my head on the wall, because I can’t think of an idea is lost forever, never to be recovered.

Why is coming up with an idea so difficult?

Writer’s Block Is Horrible! But It Is Easily Defeated

There are many ways to crush writer’s block to get back to the important task of writing…

Because sitting there, staring at a blank screen is wasted time.

I conquer writer’s block by taking long walks, reading books by other people, and getting enough sleep.

That’s all well and good, but sometimes the problem is just figuring out what to write about.

Getting that kernel of an idea on which a whole story or novel or short eBook springs.

But it shouldn’t be so difficult to find new ideas.

After all, it’s a big universe with infinite variety…

Things are always happening…

People are always working, conflicts are occurring, and change is the only constant in life.

So, what’s the best way to break through that initial writer’s block?

How to eliminate or reduce the time trying to figure out the kernel of the story, the initial spark.
