March Writing Prompts

The greatest writers in history did not become great because they were inherently brilliant; they deliberately practiced the skills they wanted to develop and improve on a daily basis. At The Literary Tutor, we strongly believe that daily practice leads to mastery. In other words, if you want to be great at writing, you must write every day.

March Prompts

Writing every day will improve your sentence structure, enhance your vocabulary, and make you more aware of your grammar usage and spelling habits. This daily practice also gives you the opportunity to expand your creativity and freely experiment with your writing style. Throughout the year, you will witness a transformation in your writing by simply dedicating 10-15 minutes of purposeful writing every day.

With spring right around the corner, we couldn’t think of a better time to encourage you to reflect on the things that make you happy and renew your spirit. After all, the purpose of our writing prompts is to not only motivate you to write regularly, but to also inspire you to think deeply and honestly about the things that matter to you.

3 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity

You’re two weeks into the new school year, and the summer haze still cloaks you like a dense fog as you stagger from one classroom to another. Writing a simple sentence feels awkward, and the pen in your hand seems like a foreign object. Your hand slowly regains mobility with every inky stroke, but you soon realize that with the pace you’re going, it’ll probably take you the entire afternoon to write a passable paragraph about Canada’s role in the War of 1812.

If this scenario sums up the struggles you’re facing now as you readjust to being a student again, we’re here to assure you that what you’re going through is perfectly normal. Who can blame you? Summer days are filled with lazy afternoons and carefree outings with friends. Immediately diving into creative work after two months of summer vacation is not always an easy thing to do.

Creativity is ignited by inspiration, so if you allow yourself to be fully aware of your surroundings, you’ll find inspiration everywhere you turn. Yes, your snoring grandfather, who is taking his third nap of the day, is inspiring! He is the protagonist of your greatest story to date about an 85 year-old man suddenly awakened by a thunderous knock on the door. An old friend he had kept a secret from his family has come by for an unexpected visit, and Gramps is not happy about it.

Now, we here at The Literary Tutor understand that the hardest part of starting an activity is taking the first step. So, if you don’t know where to begin your search for inspiration, we’ve come up with three simple and enjoyable ways to reawaken the creative genius in you.
