As a writer I know that deep down each of us has stories worth telling. The writing prompts offered here will help you find your own special voice. Read them, let your mind wander freely and listen carefully to the voice within. Then begin writing. Don’t be afraid. Just write what you want to say. Amaze yourself!...

Being a Refugee

Imagine  living in a war-torn land.  Conditions are so bad that you are forced to flee your country to a new land,  leaving behind the people and things you love. As a refugee where would you go? What would your greatest hope and wish be? Can you think of what it would be like to live in a refugee camp? What is it like to build a new life?

 

Time to Write a Horror Story

Imagine that like Frankenstein author Mary Shelley, you will write a supernatural tale ”to curl the blood, and quicken the beatings of the heart.” What will be the opening lines (or even the ending lines) of your ghost story? Who will be your hero or evil doer?  Describe him or her  — or it.  Use your nightmares to help you.

What Stories Does Your Pet Have to Tell?

Through some miracle you are able to understand the thoughts and conversations of your favorite pet or animal.  The creature’s thoughts and words astonish you — they even shock you.  They provide you with the rare chance to see the world in an entirely new light.  What stories do you hear the creatures tell?  What do you learn?
