At Today’s Author, our first goal is to get you (and us) to write. Write Now is our own collection of prompts to help you do that. With Write Now we’re not talking about writing, or trying to teach anyone how to write. Write Now is all about putting pen to paper.

How to play along with our Writing Prompts
- Write in any format or style you wish: short story, poem, script – whatever you like.
- Write for at least 5 minutes. There is no time limit – write for as long as you wish!
- Editing is not required, though we do recommend that you run a spell check at least.
- Post your work to your blog and include a link back here so your readers can find other writer’s work, too.
- Come back here and provide a link to your work on the Write Now! prompt for which it was written.
- Read other authors’ posts and leave constructive comments.
Important Note: When you post a draft of your work online, it may be difficult to find a publisher who will accept it, as many see an online document as being previously published. It may also be ineligible to be submitted for certain writing competitions. Always check publisher’s and competition guidelines before using a draft you put online.

I made a mistake and realised that, probably, I changed the word fell for feel for a reason. May be it is me, may be we all, women the same. We feel first, then we act. How we feel would influence our decisions. If I don’t FEEL IT , nothing good will come out of it, take it or leave it. You can call it six sense, you can call it intuition, you can call it whatever, but if my inner barometer not happy, then I will procrastinate, become very slow. There are many reasons for that. Previous experience? Yes, definitely. Was once there, broke and lonely. I did try to do something by inspiration only. Things don’t work like that, unfortunately. Don’t want to go there again. I decided for myself- will do anything to be independent, but has to play safe. I am not alone, neither of us, and that’s not only that. There are days, hours, weeks when you know: the time has come. You know everything going to be fine, your inner second “You” will not resist changes, because there is a strong foundation built up. I do believe that luck and success only comes to people who deserve it. Either they’ve done quite a lot of spiritual work to deserve it, or they’ve been working tirelessly to prepare themselves to it- it is irrelevant. Sometimes psychologically we are changing inside, and then changes in our environment would follow. Whatever it is (and by the way, no one knows exactly how to bring about that magic) it has to be present.
