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 inspire you. Use these prompts to write a scene, short story, or maybe even the start of a new novel.
Your prompts for February:
February in the northeastern United States is often the coldest, snowiest month of the year. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of blizzards, snow days, sledding, and hot chocolate. As an adult, I still find the quiet hours after a new snowfall to be magical. I’ll admit, having to dig my car out of my driveway later is somewhat less magical, but nonetheless, a walk in a pristine winter wonderland always inspires me. What inspires your imagination? Here are some wintry suggestions to help:
- Your protagonist is stranded in a ski lodge during a blizzard.
- Use the words icicle, mountain, and glacier in a scene .
- Set your story in an enchanted forest.
- Start a scene where a character falls through the ice.
- Write a story featuring researchers in the arctic.
Prompts can help kick-start our creative process, so… Ready. Set. Write on, writers!
