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,
