As was promised, I have for you a few story prompt ideas. I hope that at least one of them inspires you to spin a yarn of imagination. Even if it doesn't produce your finest story, at least it will get you in the "write" mood. When your finished, I'd love to hear what you come up with. Happy writing!
Prompt #1 - Emergency Broadcast System
You are driving along on your way to work, school, etc. listening to your favorite radio station. Suddenly, your favorite song is interrupted with the displaced beeps and buzzes from the radio station's emergency alert system. Most of the time it is nothing more than a monthly test. This time however the police are on the search for a suspect. Not only that, the person they describe sounds an awful lot like you. Then they describe your vehicle and a matching license plate. What do you do?
Prompt #2 - Who's Cookin'?
You wake up to a nice lazy day at home. You stretch in bed and are lured down to the kitchen by the smell of mom's signature dish. You come downstairs and plop yourself at the same familiar kitchen table for breakfast. There's mom with her back to you, looking as normal as can be. Everything seems normal. She turns around to serve you, but to your shock, whoever this person in the kitchen is, they are definitely not mom. "Good morning sunshine," she says presenting you with a plate of food. Who is this person and what happens next?
Prompt #3 - Everyone's a Critic
Ever the writer, you are busily typing away at the computer on what you feel is your next great masterpiece. You are just about finished and can hardly wait to have it published. Your computer has other ideas. Out of nowhere you hear from the computer's speaker, "What a bunch of garbage. Do you really want to put your name on this?" You are shocked of course, but really you feel more offended than anything else. What do you say to your overly critical computer?
Prompt #4 - Ex Money
It was a hard separation. Your spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, etc. moved on with someone else and you've carried on with your own life too. It's been a year to the day since your two broke up, but that's in the past. When you check your bank account you notice something's different, about $100,000.00 different. You see that the deposit came from your ex's new partner. What is going on?
Prompt #5 - The Clothes Make the Man
It has been tough finding a job and you are ready for anything. Today you have an interview for a position on a river cruise attraction. Today you also woke up fully dressed in a pirate outfit. This is just like last week when you had that interview for the tour guide position at the planetarium and you awoke in a space suit. Or the week before when you were going to be a kid's karate instructor and couldn't pull off that ninja outfit. How are you ever going to land a job?
I hope you find a story to tell here. Message me back or comment with your thoughts.
