break-2822434_640

This week’s prompt focuses on a character who decides to take a chance and step outside their comfort zone.

Maybe they always take the same route to work and decide to go on the freeway.

Perhaps they never go to new restaurants and decide to take a chance on the one that’s just opened in town.

Or it could be that your character finally decides to approach the man or woman they’ve seen on the bus or train every morning for the last year.

Lots you can do with this one so have fun and happy writing.

Monday Writing Prompts-Fear of Heights

This prompt zeroes in on fear, specifically a fear of heights. That’s what your character has to deal with. Maybe they need to go into this building for an important job interview. Perhaps they even get a job on the top floor. Maybe they’re meeting a date at the restaurant on the top floor.

How does your character deal with their fear of heights? Do they conquer their fear or will your ending be unresolved?

Have fun and happy writing.

Monday Writing Prompts-Words With More Than One Meaning

autumn-843213_640

 

This week I thought we’d try something a little different.

Here are two words, fall, leaves.

In your short story you’re not only going to use them but try and use them in as many ways as you can to show all of their meanings…

For example, It’s fall. I hope the tree doesn’t fall down.

The leaves are turning.  I’m wishing he leaves soon.

 

Hope you enjoy this one so have fun and happy writing.

Your character is being interviewed. It could be for radio, TV, or even a podcast. Why have they been chosen for the interview? Have they done something courageous  maybe? Broken a world record? Written a book? Done something controversial?

Are they nervous or excited?

Are you going to focus on them preparing for the interview or the actual day of the interview?

Lots you can do with this one so have fun and happy writing.
