Are you a “weekend warrior” when it comes to writing? Do you anxiously await for Saturday or Sunday so you can spend some much-needed time with your keyboard or notebook?
Well, here are five writing prompts that won’t take long to accomplish, but might just turn into something bigger in your work-in-progress!
Comment below and let me know how it goes!
#1 – Complete and Utter Chaos
Create a scene of chaos. Perhaps a character is panicking, a bunch of different things are going on at once, there’s a huge mess, or someone is running out of time—or all of the above!
#2 – All The Chatter
Visit a park, coffee shop, or another public place that is buzzing with activity. Take note of what you hear the people around you say. Begin an original scene or story that includes something you overheard.
#3 – Dream Logic
Write a scene or story that involves a dream. It could be a character waking up from a dream, describing a dream they had to another person, realizing they are in a strange dream, etc.
#4 – Truth Or Dare
Write a scene or story that includes a character either taking a dare, or revealing a secret about themselves.
#5 – My Story (practice your pitching!)
Imagine that you are a character from a classic tale pitching your memoir to a literary agent. You know that it will become the next bestseller. Write your query letter, story synopsis, or elevator pitch to the agent.
