You’re A Writer

Think you’re not a writer? I have news for you:

If you have a social media feed, you’re a writer!

Captions = words = writing

This caught me by surprise one day. I had been calling myself a marketer, a copywriter, even a blogger, but didn’t consider myself a writer-writer. You know, a writer. Period. Full stop.

Whether you like it or not, if you’re stringing words together for social media posts, you’re a writer. As with all writing, sometimes the well of creativity runs dry and you need a little assistance to fill it up again.

Enter: Writing prompts.

These are words or phrases, sometimes a question, to kickstart your brain and get your fingers typing. Even if you don’t end up writing about the specific topic for that day, starting with a prompt helps get the writing flowing. Plus, it’s always more fun when other people are writing and sharing their work on the same prompts.

I’m the social media manager for hope*writers, and we’ve put together this 12-day writing challenge to keep up (or maybe even start) a consistent posting habit this spring. All you have to do to participate is post each day (or whenever you’re able) and include the hashtag #hopewriterlife and tag @hopewriters.

So, what do ya say? Will you post along with me?
