Writing Prompts, week of September 29th through October 5th

Of course, I’m behind. That’s why I’m trying to schedule several of these things at once.
Once again, 250-500 words, unless I clearly state otherwise.


Sunday: write about how the night won’t save anyone.

Monday: Write about the meeting between two people who were old flames.

Tuesday: write about travel.

Wednesday: Writing from a character’s point of view, write about something they never do. Then, write about something they always do.

Thursday: Have a character take a detour.

Friday: Begin with the following dialouge: “These are three things my father told me:…”

Saturday: FREE WRITE.

Writing Prompts, week of Sept 8th-Sept 14th

So. Like usual, each prompt is valued at between 250-500 words.

Sunday:  This is the color I remember…

Monday: Write about a car trip.

Tuesday: Write about a time that someone went too far.

Wednesday: In the USA, 9/11/01 is a date we can never forget. What are the things that you do and do not remember about that day?

Thursday: “I was in a cemetery.”


Saturday: Write about someone who sinned.

Writing Prompts, week of Sept 1st-Sept 7th

Prompt Time!!

Each prompt is valued at 250-500 words. However, one of them I won’t be bothered if you can’t make it.

Sunday: write a December memory.

Monday: Free Write!

Tuesday: write about your neighborhood at 5pm. (What its like at 5pm, not sit down and write at 5pm)

Wednesday: you eavesdrop on a conversation. What do you hear?

Thursday: the time between dusk and dawn.

Friday: write about a fragrance.

Saturday: write about a place you long for.

Writing Prompts, Week of August 25th-August 31st

Forgive me for this not having tags, I can’t remember the ones I usually use on prompt posts, and I don’t have the tag cloud handy.

Apparently, I lied when I last said I was back on track. Many apologies. I wasn’t feeling iit, but that’s no excuse.

So, here we go. Each prompt is valued at between 250-500 words.

Sunday: write about the morning after it all happened.

Monday: write about what hasn’t happened.

Tuesday: you are in the backyard.

Wednesday: write about a dangerous ride. (This one is a wee bit ironic, as the delta fair starts exactly two days later.)

Thursday: “my mother once told me…”

Friday: her red hair shined so bright.

Saturday: “I believe we’re all crazy”

They are all very unimaginative prompts this week, but, only because I wanted you to have prompts tonight rather than later. I’ll have some good ones for next week.

Writing Prompts: Week of June 30th- July 6th

Here we go, back on track. Mostly.

Like usual, the old school rules apply. 250-500 words per prompt. For those of you participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this year, expect some weird posts from me about that later in the week.


Sunday: Long after I encountered (you fill in the blank here) the first time, I came across it again. Describe how (your fill in the black) changed if it did at all.

Monday: The possibilities are endless, what would you do with a lotto jackpot?

Tuesday: Write a short bit about a veteran space cruise Captain answering questions that he is tired of answering.

Wednesday: Name a good something possible. Now, how would you go about making it inevitable?

Thursday: Write about a voice that most people refuse to hear.

Friday:  ~ FREE WRITE ~

Saturday: Open a short with this line of Dialogue: “So, it has come to this.”
