Every two weeks (or so), I gather all my Twitter #WritePrompt posts and put them in a blog post for you. Here is the first batch of my Write Prompt Tweets.
- Begin a story or poem with the sentence "It snowed, so I..."
- This writing prompt is based on a book title, Glittery Images. What does this phrase suggest to you? Or, use it as a story or poem title.
- Use the following five words in a story or poem: orange, clipper, svelte, rayon and marksman.
- Like a modern day Alice, a girl finds a bottle that says "Drink Me". She does. Write a story or poem about what happens.
- You get a letter in the mail. The envelope is red...and smoking. Inside is a note that merely says 666. Set a timer for 25 minutes and begin writing a story or poem about this note.
- Take a novel off the shelf. What is the first line? Begin a story, paragraph or poem with the same line.
- You're walking in a woods when a tree speaks to you. What does it say? What happens? Set a timer for 30 minutes and write!
- Four inches of a snow on the ground, yet a man is grilling chicken on the porch. What's the story?
- You get in an elevator at the second floor and push the button for the tenth. A voice over the intercom says if you get off at the tenth floor, you die. Ready? Write!
- This last prompt is a visual one. Look at the image below. What's going on? Write a story or poem based on what you see.
If you'd like to see my #WritePrompt posts as I make them on Twitter, follow me at @JanetBoyer. Have you used any of my writing prompts for a story or poem? Feel free to post it here or email it to me at synerjay (at) atlanticbb (dot) net for possible inclusion in a guest blog post. Don't be shy...and don't forget to include your bio/website, too!
