July 2, 2017 | Erica | Leave a comment 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. Prompt 1: 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. Prompt 2: 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.” Prompt 3: 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. Prompt 4: 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.
