Write On, Writers! Your 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:

August is a sultry month – the blazing sun, the sweltering heat, even the turbulent storms. Let’s use the mood of August to inspire our writing.

  • Start your steamy romance with a beach rescue.
  • Set your psychological thriller or mystery in an abandoned cabin during a hurricane.
  • Use the words shimmer, scorching, and tempest in a scene.
  • In August of 1958, the first nuclear submarine, the USS Nautilus, passed under the north pole. Pen a speculative fiction tale where the crew discovers something hidden in the watery depths.
  • Create a story of friendship and family based on a group of people who summered together on the coast during the month of August every year.

Writing 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.
