Writing Prompts for the Terminally Stuck

C&HEvery once in a while a storyteller can’t think of . . . well, A STORY TO TELL. That’s when writing prompts come in handy.

Below are a few jumping-off points for potential story ideas (some from me, some I found online).

Enjoy!

 

WRITING PROMPTS:

 

You wake up feeling refreshed, a new day a new— wait your favorite pair of pants is missing. Darting up from bed you hear a noise outside. A woman is wearing them and looking straight at you. What do you do?

 

Being a famous rock star is hard. Especially when an alien invasion hits mid-concert. As lasers and abductions abound, do you think your sick beats can stop this catastrophe? Write about how you attempted to fight off the aliens and whether or not you succeeded.

 

You wake up in—wait this isn’t your room. Confused you step to the mirror and see that you’re Tony Stark . . . and his Iron Man suite is leaning against the wall. What would you do?

 

You’re a pirate on a small pirate ship that consists of only you, one other pirate and a captain. Recently you ransacked another ship and found a treasure map. After weeks of following it, you’ve finally found the island where “X” marks the spot. Write a scene where you find the buried treasure, only it’s not exactly the treasure you expected to find.

 

It was a Halloween rules since childhood: Never eat the cookies from Mrs. Hazel’s house. You broke the rule to impress a classmate and now you are growing scales. What will you do?

 

Your computer won’t shut down when you are getting ready to leave work at five. Instead, it is looping a message, and then attempts to tell you something. What is your computer doing?

 

You and three classmates end up locked inside the Mall – do you try to get out or do you party like rockstars?

 

You’re a struggling musician who is playing small clubs on a summer tour across the country and who generally sleeps in your van. But one night, in a small town of Hyannis, a concertgoer offers to let you sleep on his/her couch. You take the offer, but by morning you regret it. Write a story that explains what happens.
