Backsliding | Daily Inkling

Write a blog post inspired by today’s Daily Inkling:

“Backsliding”

Bloggers are always improving. Read your first five posts and pay attention to the mistakes. Then, get into the headspace of past you by attempting to craft an original post with all the trappings, opinions, and errors common to your older writing.

Depending on your blog’s format, this could be a little risky. We won’t be offended if you choose not to publish. It’s still a good writing exercise. 


  • We’ll post a new prompt every day!
  • Write a post inspired by the prompt! Feel free to modify it as much as you like. It is your clay, so model it into whatever form you see fit.
  • Leave a pingback to this so others can see it! Simply add a link to this Daily Inkling anywhere in your response post.
  • Read/follow/comment on the works of other bloggers of the same post!

      1. Thanks for stopping by to read my blog. ‘Tis a labor of love and goofiness. When next I need a writing prompt I’ll remember your suggestions. Cool format you’ve got going on here.

  1. I wouldn’t even know how to begin to do this prompt. My blog had morphed so much and started out of kind of a dark place, lol. I’m so happy to be included, though, and I’ll definitely try some of the other prompts. I need some motivation to get back writing everyday.
