10 Writing Prompts pt. 3   Leave a comment

by Elizabeth Huff


  • Write a story from the point of view of an appliance that gets broken and thrown out.
  • The mob was gaining on him. He could hear their angry shouts getting louder and louder with every beat of his heart. Desperately looking around for a place to hide, his eyes fell on the dumpster half hidden in a dark alley. He climbed in and waited. He couldn’t help but let his thought drift over the events of the past couple days, and the circumstances that allowed him to end up like this…
  • A maid is cleaning her employer’s house when she finds something disturbing.
  • What would a jungle on an alien planet look like? Write from the perspective of an explorer.
  • Write a fake news article about the freakiest event you can think of.
  • What if you woke up one day and no one remembered you? Are you crazy? Is there something wrong with everyone else?
  • Set the story of “Romeo and Juliet” in a fantasy world.
  • Write an urban legend centered around your high school.
  • Base a short story on your horoscope.
  • What if one day you looked in the mirror and noticed your reflection was alive? How long has it been alive and aware? What if it had sinister motives?
