We all have varying hobbies in our lives. Some people enjoy jogging, cycling, basketball while others simply like to mellow out with a book or a journal in which to pen their thoughts. If you are a writer, you know that several times you encounter a rare "disease" called Writers's Block! This means that although your heart is willing to write, the ideas just won't come out of your pen or keyboard. Students who must prepare a couple different papers for assignments particularly find it rough to begin to formulate their thoughts. That's when you need a little push to get your creative juices flowing and the words tumbling out on the page.

Writing Prompts helps simplify the writing process by giving you many varied themes and ideas. Its writing generators incorporate scenes, words, sketches, colors, genres and writing types to give you a large assortment of ideas from which to choose. In fact, there are 600 creative writing prompts included from which you can select. To make things a tad easier, all you have to do is shake your device or swipe across the screen to find a new prompt to suit your tastes. When you discover a prompt that intrigues you, simply add it to your favorites by tapping the star icon.
