Welcome to the 100-Day Writing Challenge! At Qwiklit, we are committed to getting creatives to get their work done. Many writers have no problem saying they’re writers, but there’s little out there that really proves your grit and consistency as a writer. For that reason, we have created a 100 day, 1-prompt a day challenge to keep you on your feet and make sure those creative juices are still flowing.
The prompts in question range in difficulty from the short and simple to the lengthy and difficult. You will find topics you may be familiar with, but others that will push you out of your comfort zone–and that’s the point. Young writers are often emboldened by their creativity but stifled by their consistency. We want to build positive habits while keeping composition fresh and fun.
Those who complete this challenge will undoubtedly notice a difference in their writing, as we constantly force you to look at objects, stories and people from different angles. One of the greatest causes of writer’s block is a failure to think outside the box.That’s why we’ve given you one hundred of them.
Feel free to write your responses in the comment boxes, though some prompts demand you move away from the computer and even the pen, too. Some are also slightly personal, but that’s because we know that writing at times demands an emotional investment.If you have any feedback, too, we’d love to hear it. We want to turn the contemplative dreamer into the next great novelist. We urge you, though, to start at square one. Click any box below to begin. Good luck!
These Prompts will help you remove the cobwebs and get you writing almost immediately. They are not meant to push your boundaries as much as open the floodgates.
While these are tougher, they are more rewarding. By forcing you to rethink villains, stories, people, places and times, these prompts will help you add style to your prose and poetry.
While these prompts are still engaging as the previous 50, they demand slightly more work ethic. Combined with creativity, though, these will help your attention span and concentration as much as the quality of your writing. Discipline is one of the most underrated qualities of the successful writer.
These prompts will not only force you to develop your writing skills, but also your ability to transcend regular types of writing. Like tough math equations, they will demand a combination of care, concentration and boldness to complete.
