Writing Prompts and Exercises to Banish Writers Block

One of my favorite things to do in my spare time is to write, but sometimes, the inspiration isn’t there. If I need a little help starting, I tend to look up writing prompts. What I like best about them is that you can interpret them any way you want, so that two people using the same prompt will come out with vastly different finished produces, save a few similar words or an underlying theme. I’ve decided to try my hand at creating writing prompts, partially to inspire my readers, but also for myself. I found that even thinking these up caused my creativity to start flowing. Take a look through these, write a poem or short story, and share it with me, if you want!

Write a poem or short story…

  •  Using the words rose, teacup, and translucent.
  • “I can’t believe she got away with it.”
  • About your favorite childhood memory.
  • About your least favorite childhood memory.
  • About a character who is chronically late and highly empathetic.
  • “Did you hear he used a screwdriver? That man is talented.”
  • Using the words emphatic, fruit fly, and stone.
  • About a stranger you see on the street.
  • About your favorite teacher in elementary school.
  • Using the words chalky, confusion, and breakwater.
  • “That’s something you don’t see every day.”
  • “I knew her once.”
  • Using the words junk, rich, and danger.
  • About a city you’ve never visited.
  • “She was ethereal, lit up by the moon.”
