It’s been a while since we’ve had a round of writing prompts on here. I decided to branch out and do historical prompts. This place was getting bogged down with all the fantasy prompts.
Now, I don’t write historical. I tried to write a short story set in the Great Depression, but it turned into a miserable failure. (Actually, my seven year old brother read it over my shoulder while I typed it, and I asked him for help. The plot didn’t improve, so I’ll blame that story’s failure on him. But he liked the story.)
These historical fiction prompts are going to be something unique because–guess what– they all happened in history! (I know, historical fiction normally is set in history, but hear me out.)
These prompts were all in the newspaper and they caught my eye. These are real life prompts, taken from headlines and articles in newspapers a long time ago. Some are quite humorous, and I daresay you’ll like them whether you write historical or not. Continue reading
Hello there, let’s start with this little thing that I found on my computer. Computers are full of surprises. Things can get buried, and then they appear, and you’re like: “When did I ever make that?” Happens to me all the time.
No one has ever explored the bottoms of the sea. Mankind has opted to explore the depths of space. It seems suspicious that we’ll explore the place so big that we call it “Space,” but we haven’t even seen all of our planet.
Well, they tried. It just went unrecorded. The mission was never noted anywhere, any evidence was destroyed.
Did that catch your attention? 😛 That came from a prompt I found somewhere, some time long ago. Feel free to finish it, as I probably won’t get around to it for a while. Onto the fresh, new prompts! (And this time, they sorta are castle-y) Continue reading
Ah, back again with the writing prompts. Happy day! Continue reading
It’s been a while, but here we go again! This time I decided to go slightly zany. Then again, most everything is a little zany around here, so there is not much difference. 🙂 Continue reading
Ooh, the temperatures are dropping, the leaves have already dropped, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Winter is my absolute favorite time of the year for a lot of reasons. Reflect on some of them while you illustrate some of these cool (pun intended) art prompts! Continue reading

As I discussed in the last post about writer’s block, sometimes you need to do something else. If your story is lagging somewhere (likely in the middle) try adding one of these twists or complications to your story. Do with them as you will. Continue reading
The nice thing about writing prompts is that I don’t have to write the ideas I come up with. I can sit back and relax after posting the prompt. If the prompt catches someone’s eye, and they write a best-selling book, well, I can still claim a teensy bit of credit for the idea. Continue reading
Halloween is just around the corner! I love this time of year. The leaves are starting to fall, the bugs are dying, (Finally!) pumpkins are everywhere, pumpkin spice fills the air… Unless you’re in the Southern Hemisphere. Then I guess you’re loving Spring. Anyway, this time I decided to do an art contest and a blurb contest all in the same post! Look at that. Continue reading
