If you're not sure what to write, you might be hung up by thinking you have nothing to say. The truth is, you're full of interesting information and learning more all the time. Ever hear that phrase, "you learn something new every day?" I believe it's true. In fact, today, let's learn something and reteach it to someone else.

First, visit your favorite website, blog, or social media site. (Yes, Facebook is encouraged for this writing prompt, just don't get distracted.) Once there, look for an article or blog post with more than a few paragraphs.

Read the post and then – here’s where the writing comes in – explain, in your own words, what you read and learned. Feel free to add your own twists or examples to make your story unique.

Write Now! persuasive writing prompts are presented by the Professional Writers’ Alliance (PWA) — a professional association just for direct-response industry writers. Learn about the many benefits of a PWA membership.

  1. After listening to Christina's short video reminding us we have more to say than we think, the light bulb went on for me! I realized I too had something to say! Just hours earlier I had a dental procedure and had been so nervous and scared about it,I almost chickened out! But, managed to make myself go through with it! And, I was amazed at what used to be a traumatic experience is now made to seem simple and pain-free!I am very thankful of all the improvements technology has made in the medical and dental industry. It is the difference between giving us positive memories and experiences instead of fearful and negative memories!
