Prompt Your Muse

We all have trouble, at some point in our illustrious writing careers, coming up with fresh ideas for new stories. That’s what prompts are for!

There are a plethora of sites on the internet that offer writing prompts in every genre.

One prompt I like is: A car is seen by a passing motorist going off a cliff road. When the motorist stops to help, there is no car, only a woman dangling from the edge. He reaches for her hand and something green grabs hold. 

I tweaked prompt #9 found here.

Even if you are not after a story starter, prompts can work to fill in the gaps if you struggle to move your story to conclusion.

I like to create prompts for later works by asking myself “what if?” and then writing down what comes to mind.

All my best,
