Thinking Ten - A Writer's Playground

"Each weekday morning, a themed writing prompt will be posted. What improvised story ("daily flash") can you create in ten minutes?"

That is the introduction to Thinking Ten - A Writer's Playground. Created by Blake N. Cooper, I stumbled across this site from a link he had added at Six Sentences.

The Point
Practice—that's the point of Thinking Ten. My goal, here, is to create a place you can come to each day to get your reps in, learn from others in the ThinkingTen community, and, ultimately, strengthen your craft.

The creative process—more specifically, the art of preparation and practice—feels like it's fading and this site is my attempt to reverse the trend. Full disclosure: I want to be part of your day—if only for ten minutes. No matter at what level you consider your writing skills to be, it is my hope that you jump into the ThinkingTen world, practice your craft by participating in the daily (weekday) prompts, and offer some feedback to other writers putting themselves out there.


Do yourself a favour and go and have a look. It has certainly been a great experience for me so far.

I'll give it a look-see. I still can't get my head round 6s social network so I could be staring at the screen for days before I do anything. :-)

A great word has just come up for "word verification"...kunting!

This site will be a lot of fun while we're fine tuning our creativity.
