writing prompt #223

I got asked about math writing prompts and remembered this one. I think there are a few more in the archives, but I’ll have to dig around a bit to find them.

Convince me that the universe wants to be noticed

Now that the TFIOS trailer is out, it’s probably time that I start making more TFIOS related prompts.

Tom Woodward tweeted about the picture that goes with this prompt and said that it’s “begging for use as a writing prompt.” I couldn’t agree more; there’s a lot of story potential in this picture.

Maximalism & Minimalism

I got an email asking about this one. It’s dense, but it makes for a good writing exercise. 

Also, I’d recommend checking out Telescopic Text and trying to use it for this activity.

The Atlantic’s Netflix-Genre Generator

If you want some interesting writing prompt material, try out The Atlantic’s Netflix-Genre Generator. I had a lot of fun trying it out, and you should stay for the writing. Alexis Madrigal has a brilliant piece explaining the whole thing. Below are a few of the genre/prompt ideas I got while trying it out. Note: I definitely don’t recommend some of these, especially the last one…

writing prompts for the holidays

I’ve gotten a few requests for holiday prompts, so I thought I’d put a quick post together with some ideas. The problem is that I don’t have many great ideas when it comes to holiday prompts, so any suggestions would be great. You can click on the ask link to send me an idea, if you have a good one. 

Here’s what I have:

Explain Christmas to a young pine tree.

There’s also this one from this set, but it seems pretty lame compared to Byrdseed’s Create a Holiday idea, which I’d recommend checking out:

I’ll try to add more here if any good ideas come to light… 

Update

katielouiselee suggested this one:
"I often do ‘Make a case for a Christmas with no presents.’" That reminded me of this one I did way back in the day:

Here’s another from this set of prompts

This idea is from mrsstartrekkie:

"You have spent your entire life living in an area with no snow or cold or other such things; write about experiencing snow for the first time."

BIG UPDATE: John Spencer at photoprompts has way more going on over there when it comes to the holiday prompt thing.
