Listen to the Music

Listen to a random song, or choose one of your favourites. Pay attention to the lyrics. Take a line, or a phrase or even a single word that speaks to you and use it as inspiration for your story. Capture the essence of what the line means to you rather than using it in your story (if you want to publish your story, you can get in trouble if you use lyrics – mentioning song titles is okay, though).

This is the last of my #TwitterFiction writing prompts. I hope you enjoyed them.

Set your timer. Write!

Will this day never end?

Here you go, the penultimate #TwitterFiction writing prompt.
Think about the question: What kind of day is it? Is it meant figuratively or literally? Who's asking it?

Have fun with it. Set your timer. Write!

Character and Setting

Here's the second #TwitterFiction Festival prompt:

Who your character is, what she knows, what she values – all these influence how she looks at the world around her. Choose a setting: a playground, a space ship, a supermarket or any other place you like. Insert your character into the setting. Don't tell us, make it clear through her observations where she is and what it means to her.

Lost (and Found?)

The TwitterFiction Festival has begun and I've come out of my hiatus. I'll only stick around for five days, though.

Today, write a story about a character who lost a mundane item that is irreplaceable to her/him. I'll leave it up to you to decide if the character will find it again. Bonus points if you manage to turn it into a piece of #TwitterFiction.

Off you go. Set your timer. Write!

I've come to the conclusion that since I'm the only one who's using the prompts, I may as well save time and not post them here. Who knows, I may come back at some point.

Writing prompts are great. I've written plenty of stories inspired by a prompt that surprised me. I've had ideas for works in progress that took them to the next level thanks to writing prompts. I will not stop using writing prompts. But I won't share them anymore.

I leave you, for now, with three years' worth of prompts. Now set your timer. Write!
