Set up a Writing Practice for August:

During July I have been busy with Camp NaNoWriMo. In August I am still working on my book but I also want to go back to my creative writing practice. To do this I use the Oracle Book so I always know what to focus on for my practice. Below I share how you can do the same.

In this blog post:

  • You get an instant download of an August monthly calendar

  • + 7 free prompts with questions and answers from the Oracle book

  • and the link to download the Oracle book for free - Practical and inspirational guidance for writers

Try a new writing practice in August

Last month I created the Oracle Book PDF. By referring to the oracle table you can access over 700 prompts. In this blog post I share 7 of them. One prompt for the first seven days of August.

If you get the free PDF yourself it works like this - you pick a number between 1-48 and then a letter from A-O and then refer to the oracle table. In this blog post I have selected the numbers and letters and share the questions and answers given.

To keep it easy I choose the numbers 1-7 to corelate with the first seven days of August. And below you can see the letters
