Writing Prompts

When I first became serious about writing, I had tons of ideas but all of them translated into a full-length novels and I wanted to write short stories to develop my writing and voice.  In order to gain some experience, I started writing based on prompts that I found on Pinterest and sites such as Writing Exercises, http://writingexercises.co.uk/index.php.  Before long, I found that I had created characters and worlds that I wanted to explore further.  Many of my ideas, of books that have been and will be written, have come from writing prompts, and I believe that using them when you are first starting out, can be an important part of your journey as a writer.
