Prompts work because they impose limitations on your writing, which focuses your attention and helps you to think creatively.
I love these weird writing prompts and I hope you’ll love them, too. These were all made up by moi—feel free to take what works for you and leave the rest, or tweak them however you like!
Okay, here we go!
Choose a scene from your favourite movie and rewrite it from the perspective of an object in the room.
Write a scene from the perspective of the colour red.

Write a scene about a picnic that is only dialogue.
Let me know which prompt is your favourite in the comments. I’d love to know if any of these helped you!
