Writing Prompt: Try something risky

Suffering from writer’s block or need to add some spunk to your writing? The problem may be that you need to change up your routine.

To that end, try this tip: Risk means being vulnerable. Accepting that as a writer is vital to developing your skills. So go ahead and try writing something you’ve never done before – a poem if you write prose, a novel if you’ve only written short stories, fiction if you write just nonfiction. Don’t worry about getting it “right.” Your goal is to make yourself more comfortable with taking risks as a writer.
