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 writing prompts for February:
I don’t know about you, but by February the shine of the new year has worn off a little, and I lose some of my enthusiasm during the dark days of mid-winter. It seems like the perfect time to use prompts to help keep yourself motivated and keep your writing fresh.
- A highlight of February is Valentine’s day. Have you ever wanted to write a rom-com? How about featuring a case of mistaken identity when profiles are crossed on a dating app?
- In February of 1938, Disney released it’s animated version of Snow White nationwide. As with most fairy tales, the Grimm version remains the darker one. Try a modern retelling of this classic with a horror/noir flair.
- Use the words heart, chocolate, and fiend in the opening paragraph of your story.
- In the northern part of the world winter is still in full swing, and there have been a fair share of blizzards in the month of February. Start your story smack in the middle of Mother Nature’s fury.
- Just for fun, pen a collection of love poetry – one for each day of the month!
Writing prompts can help kick-start our creative process, so… Ready. Set. Write on, writers!
