A Post a Day….

The WKU Writing Center is back and we’re anxious to get started!  We want to get you writing and thinking about writing so every day of the week, we will be posting different writing prompts and quotes.  On our Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, we will be posting these daily quotes and prompts meant to get you thinking critically.  Each day has a specific theme and will be featured with an image.  Be sure to follow us so you can write and think right along with us!  The following is how each day is categorized:

Monday Motivation

For this one, we will be posting writing and study advice.  This advice is meant to help you when you aren’t sure where to go next with your writing and studying habits.

Typewriter Tuesday

We will be traveling around with Dr. Fife’s typewriters to take photos all over campus.  These photos will feature a writing quote meant to get you thinking about writing and the process of writing in general.

Write Something Wednesday

We will be posting an image with a specific writing prompt.  The prompt may be creative, analytical, formal, or other genre of writing.  Write something really good? Send it us in a message at www.facebook.com/wkuwritingcenter  and it may be featured on our blog!  Be sure your name, writing prompt, and email are attached to the piece so we can contact you for further information.

Thursday Thought

On this one, the image will feature a literary quote meant to get you thinking critically and allows you to think about writing and literature and how the two are related.  These quotes are meant to be thought provoking while also introducing you to different literary works.

Free Write Friday

We’ll post a general or thematic writing prompt.  All you have to do is write! The goal of Free Writing is to allow your pen to flow freely from one thought to another as you write on the page.  These pieces are generally creative, but take your own spin on these ones.  Write something really good? Send it to us in a message at www.facebook.com/wkuwritingcenter and it may be featured on our blog! Be sure your name, writing prompt, and email are attached to the piece so we can contact you for further information.

Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter so you can receive each daily update and take a chance on writing! Writing every day improves your writing skills; it’s like any craft…you have to practice to get better.  So what are you waiting for? Let’s write!
