English Writing Prompts: General Writing Prompts
Writing for non-academic purposes can be described as general writing. This is the style of writing we use in our day to day life. Diary and journal entries, letters, emails, stories, advertisements, etc. are all written in a general writing style. Although general writing also requires correct spelling and grammar, it is not as strict as academic writing. In addition, there are no restrictions on the use of slang, contractions, clichés and other words.
