Fascinating writing prompts get stories going. For those of you who are hungry for a fascinating writing or illustration prompt, here are two ideas from a Bryan Cohen’s free Ebook on Amazon Kindle.
- The main fear that Alicia Waters has hidden in her heart is that Phillip Andrews will not notice her in first period biology. Therefore, she uses a bottle of spray paint.
- Any man would understand why Patrick O’Neal became a chef, but not his Mother.
The two prompts I wrote below can be used for writing or illustrating. Remember to use your senses:
- Ben wished his parents understood, but he was going to do it anyway.
- I talk to pets. They talk to me. What? You don’t believe me?
When you write you want people to have questions after they read what you’ve put down. You want them curious about what’s going to happen to the main character.
Good luck with your writing. I know that if you read a few of the ideas from the following blog posts, you’ll get fascinated by one of the ideas. Your mind will spin-off these ideas and create wonder filled situations for you and your characters.
