Write On, Writers! Writing Prompts for August

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

It’s that time…

We all need a little inspiration sometimes, so on the first Monday of every month, we’ll post a series of writing prompts intended to motivate you. Use these prompts to write a scene, short story, or maybe even the start of a new novel.

Your prompts for August:

With the scorching sun blazing and menacing storms on the horizon, August can be a volatile month. Use that intensity to fuel your storytelling! Here are some suggestions to help you get started:

  • A hurricane is brewing! Begin a scene with your main characters hustling to prepare.
  • Jaws frightened a generation of beachgoers, myself included! Create a tale of terror using a sea creature from your own imagination.
  • Write a sexy, sweet, end-of-summer romance.
  • Use the words sultry, burn, and resounding in a scene.
  • On August 1981, IBM introduced the personal computer, changing the landscape of technology forever! Write a speculative story featuring an AI as the main character.

Prompts can help kick-start our creative process, so… Ready. Set. Write on, writers!

Do you have a topic you would like us to cover? Let us know about your suggestion.
