Writing Prompts

Been struggling with your writing goals?

Writing prompts can help trigger your thought and get you writing again when you are stuck. They can give you a new situation to put your character in or add fresh direction to the plot. Here are a few writing prompts to help you finish the month strong.

  • Add this to a scene: a huge fire,
  • Add an explosion somewhere in the scene. And remember–an explosion doesn’t have to be what you think at first. It might be something a little different.
  • Use these words in your writing: crazy, half-baked, sympathy, score, jump, insinuate, love.
  • Let something terrifically good happen for your character as you write.
  • Have your character meet someone new.
  • Use something from the news in your writing.
  • What is the worst thing that could happen to your character? Let it happen.
  • One good kiss scene, that’s all we ask. Write it out. Have fun.

Have fun with the writing prompts.

    HAHAHA. I feel like most of my scenes in this NaNoWriMo book are big fires…but maybe I should add an explosion.

    I’m writing a middle grade wildfire mystery this year and it is fun, but very challenging. How do you describe fire in different ways? I’m trying to figure it out.
