Write a story about a scrappy underdog coming out on top. It should have a sci-fi or fantasy element.
Write about someone who is completely and utterly awful in every way imaginable. Maybe throw in a unicorn or a narwhal.
Here are three things. Put them in your story or something.
a car with a broken tail light, a cigarette machine filled with something besides cigarettes, a mysterious coin
A new diner opens in a small Texas town. At the same time, the town’s mayor disappears and a mysterious female stranger comes to town. Also, 20 people in the town die. Are all these events related?
A new prompt! It’s a Christmas miracle!
Write about someone whose terrifying Christmas-themed fan fiction is discovered by their significant other. Is the significant other horrified or intrigued?
Three things. Use them all in your story or whatever:
a magic ukulele, a crystal ball, an ice cream shop
Write a story that revolves around transportation.
Write about something who takes time off from work and has an unexpected adventure. It has to involve a monk and cupcake that is more than it seems.
Write a story about a synth-pop band and a haunted house. Maybe throw in a robot if you’re feeling ambitious.
Write a story that uses driving as a metaphor. A metaphor for what? It’s your job to figure that out.
Write a romance story about two people who live in abutting apartments and are madly in love with each other, but have never actually met each other face-to-face.
All this stuff. It goes in your story:
Genre: steampunk + romance
Person: An overthrown island dictator.
Problem: The mayor of a small village has gone missing.
Use all this junk in your story:
a time traveler, a church recreation building, a mysterious amulet
Write a story. Use all of these words:
fiasco, pestilent, variform, zealous, culpable, histrionic, moonshine
Write a story. Have it take place in, oh, the 1950s. A college kid brings his nerdy friend to his suburban home to stay with his family for the weekend. While the nerdy friend is chatting in the kitchen about something really boring and benign with the college kid’s high-school-senior sister (who is also socially awkward and nerdy), things get hot and heavy really fast. Meanwhile, the Joneses down the street are all asleep in their coffins with their blackout curtains drawn, waiting for the night to fall.
So, yeah. Write a story about that.
Also, sorry about the lack of updates recently. Things are busy but should be back to normal in a week or so.
