Writing Prompts for November

Write something based on one of the writing prompts below.  Try One Prompt a Week!

  • Describe a color without using its name (example: red, orange, blue etc.). Go abstract like using themes, imagery, and sensations instead!

  • Feel free to write poetry as well.

  • Listen to one of your favorite songs; immediately afterwards, write about how it made you feel.

  • You sit down to family dinner and notice that one of your parents has been replaced by a robot. Nobody seems to notice except for you.

  • Bottled emotions are a product you can buy.

  • On an expedition, you discover an underwater civilization. Is this civilization advanced? Is the infrastructure in ruin? Is there anyone or anything that lives there or has it become overrun by nature?
