Writing Prompts

Back again with the writing prompts.  (I’ll never stop. There may not be any for a while, but eventually, they’ll come back when you least expect it.)

On my quest to come up with good story prompts, I ran across this story generator.  You just plug in numbers, nouns, adjectives, and names like MadLibs, and press “Write me a short story,” and poof, and there you have a story.  The link: plot-generator.org.uk/story/

There’s also this random story generator, where it fills the blanks with random words.  I highly recommend it for comedic purposes.

It can yield wonderful works of literary genius like this:

“Tommy gazed with the affection of 8708 callous blue badgers. He said, in hushed tones, “I love you and I want some more Facebook friends.”

Flora looked back, even more sneezy and still fingering the warped kettle. “Tommy, let’s get married,” she replied.

They looked at each other with stable feelings, like two dry, disgusted donkeys jumping at a very articulate dinner party, which had classical music playing in the background and two considerate uncles walking to the beat.”

I really couldn’t make that up, even if I tried.

I could make up these prompts, though they’re not quite as entertaining XD. Continue reading

Dialogue Prompts

Dialogue prompts are great fun to read and write.  These are a little more sarcastic and sassy in tone than my other writing prompts, but I suppose that’s the nature of dialogue prompts.

Slightly Strange Writing Prompts

writing prompts

There’s only so many post titles you can make up for writing prompts.  Don’t judge me. 😉  More writing prompts, in order to celebrate the making of this blog, which started sometime this month, last year?  (Wow, that’s a lot of commas.)  I honestly can’t remember when.  My first drafts were writing prompts though, so…. ta-da!

Historical Writing Prompts

Adobe Spark (9)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

More Writing Prompts

castle

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
