More April 20th Writing Prompts

Writing prompts were already provided for the April 20th KWA meeting, but we have more now. You have so many choices to challenge your writing skills.

  1. Your character has a parrot that can repeat words that it hears. Lately, it has picked up some disturbing language — it sounds as if it’s threatening your character! Who has been teaching it these phrases?
  2. The bus drops off your young character and his friends at summer camp. They walk up the drive to the cabins and find them deserted. The main lodge is empty too. No one seems to be here at all.
  3. You’ve been going to the same bar every night for the past five years. In fact, you’re such a regular that when you enter, the other patrons yell your name and the bartender already has your drink waiting for you. But then one Friday you arrive, and no one seems to recognize you.
  4. Start your story with: “My dad gave me three life rules to live by: 1. (fill in the blank), 2. (fill in the blank), and 3. (fill in the blank). The first two were easy, but the third one proved difficult because of a cheeseburger. Let me explain.”

You are welcome to use of of these prompts or any of thee earlier prompts. Or use one of your own.
