Bum Glue

In her craft book Write Away: One Novelist’s Approach to Fiction and the Writing Life, Elizabeth George spends an entire chapter on the value of what she calls “bum glue.”

She defines it as that which keeps one’s bottom firmly attached to the chair in which one sits while writing.

Although bum glue goes by many different names, the vast majority of successful authors confirm – or, at least, confess – it’s the primary differentiator between writing and not writing.

Bum glue needs to be applied daily. That’s why Prompt Inspiration sends a writing prompt every day – every weekday, every weekend day, every holiday, every leap day.

For all those days when you think there’s not enough bum glue left in the tube, a compelling writing prompt can make all the difference.
