10 Prepositional Phrases to Inspire Your Writing

Hello Writers!

Photo taken by Lenee Cobb

One of my long-standing techniques to rid myself of writer’s block has been to pen a prepositional phrase (or two) to warm up my imagination. If you should use any of these as a spark, please link to your blog and share with us under the comment section. Feel free to add adjectives or anything else to make it your own.

Also, let me (us) know what you think of my technique.

  1. under the log
  2. by the river
  3. against the mushroom
  4. around the campfire
  5.  inside the locked gate
  6. over the bridge
  7. beneath the dark water
  8. through the fog
  9. on top of the counter
  10. below the canopy

This is my response to the Daily Prompt: Ten.

I look forward to hearing from you.

    1. Yes. Sometimes though, the mind (my mind) is a white sheet of nothing but (perhaps) blue lines. Ti fill them with something, I begin with a prepositional phrase and then build everything up around it. Once I have a paragraph built, I can try different POVs. Let me know if it helps.

      1. As I am always working on a long project or another, I have something of an idea of what is meant to happen. My blocks occur more in the formation of these scenes rather than from a lack of material. But I will definitely give this a try next time I feel blocked even in arranging my chapter and see if it takes me down another avenue. Thanks!
