Write On, Writers! Writing Prompts for January

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 inspire you. Use these prompts to write a scene, short story, or maybe even the start of a new novel.

Your prompts for January:

The new year is a perfect time to start a new writing project. Commit to writing something every day, and soon you’ll have a manuscript! If you need a kickstart, a good writing prompt may be just the thing. Here are some suggestions:

  • Begin your story at a New Year’s Eve party.
  • Use the words frigid, frost, and fireplace in a scene.
  • Set your story in a winter hunting lodge.
  • Give a favorite fairy tale a macabre twist.
  • Write a main character who wakes up to find a full year has passed.

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.
