Welcome to your creative writing class

The problem with thinking that writing is hard is that it keeps you from actually writing. Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, the creators and writers of Welcome To Night Vale, pick a subject, dissect it, then give you two assignments: consume something and create something. The create assignment is a prompt, which gives you a starting point to create an idea. I always thought that writing involved complicated plotting and outlining. Now I just write what comes into my head, and it's so much more fun.
