Prompt to Page With Tiffany Reisz

Each month, we interview a published writer who shares their favorite writing prompt. Whether you’re just getting started or have written for years, you’ll find ideas and advice to inspire you and help you become a better writer.

Prompt to Page is brought to you in partnership with the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning.

Listen to Episode 7

For our seventh episode, we talk to USA Today-bestselling author Tiffany Reisz. Tiffany shares a favorite writing prompt from V.E. Schwab that will help you check in with your characters. Tiffany offers a writing prompt she designed that will help you raise the stakes of your plot and engage your readers.

Tiffany also shares her thoughts on writer’s block. “When you’re stuck,” she says, “that’s your brain trying to tell you, we need to go in a different direction. And writing prompts or writing craft books can help you find that direction. The writer’s block is always trying to tell you something. It’s not a wall; it’s a sign, and you need to learn how to read the sign.”
