Creative writing prompts / 1

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

Here's a big old creative writing prompt dump. The first of many.

New to writing prompts? Lemme steal a definition off the internet for you...
A writing prompt is simply a topic around which you start jotting down ideas. The prompt could be a single word, a short phrase, a complete paragraph or even a picture, with the idea being to give you something to focus upon as you write. You may stick very closely to the original prompt or you may wander off at a tangent.
