Writing Prompt: Observe and write

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: Place yourself in a situation where you can see or overhear what needs to be written in a passage. For example, if you’re uncertain how to describe the way people react when their favorite team scores, go to a sports bar during a big game. If you need to describe two people talking in hushed whispers to one another, go somewhere where people do that, such as a coffee shop.
