50 Foolproof Writing Prompts That Will Motivate Anyone (Part 1)

I have designed these writing prompts for people like me who have the bare bones of a story or character and just need to get to know them better. Every week I will publish five more prompts that will help you see your character and novel in a new light.

 

  1. Tell the story of a particularly sad Christmas Day through the eyes of your protagonist.

 

  1. Pretend your character lives to seventy five and is able to go back in time to now (however old they are at the time of your story) – what would they say to their younger self? What would they warn themselves about? Would the older and younger even like or approve of each other?

 

  1. What does your character keep on top of their bedside table? What is hidden in the drawer?

 

  1. Tell the story of the time your character was six years old, and left alone by mistake.

 

  1. Tell the story about the time your character was forced to help someone they didn’t like.
