For the majority of my readers, it’s summer there, in July, so here are a few hot July writing prompts for the upcoming week, as well as some links to some pretty decent writing prompt articles.
From a site that just keeps coming up for me, Writers Write, Amanda Patterson’s article: 20 Myths to use as Writing Prompts which gave me the idea for:
Write a myth to explain why summer occurs.
From The Daily Post, an ebook with 365 Days of Writing Prompts. I suggest this one:
July 2nd: – The road less travelled-
“Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision. Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.”
Next, use what you wrote for Prompt 2, but change your main character from yourself to someone else. Insert a newly made character, someone completely different to yourself. Also, change the point of view, and the setting if it’s practical.
In other words: Retell Prompt 2, with a new character, new POV and setting, turning it from a short personal essay to a work of short fiction.
Viking, Underwater, Utopia
– 3 words from my trusty Brainstormer app.
and some single word or phrase writing prompts:
Prompt 5: Heating up
Prompt 6: Scorching
Prompt 7: Botched
I hope you find some inspiration or at least a few 100 words of from these July inspired writing prompts.
