Let's practice our writing skills (list of prompts)

Sometimes we get stuck with writer’s block or we just don’t feel creative enough to come with an idea. That’s why I created this thread, we can all practice and help each other. I will reply with some prompts but feel free to share some prompts with us!

You can share what you wrote here if you like, but don’t feel obligated, what you write is completely yours and I hope it helps you with your story.

I hope you support this thread, you can also request some prompts (example: I want prompts to write a fantasy story, I want prompts to create an interesting mean girl).

You can also quote your favorite prompt from the thread and I will make sure to include more prompts of that kind (this is very helpful to me, I want to make sure that the prompts are useful)

I will also include song lyrics in this thread as a prompt, hope it’s useful!

“I used to be untouchable and dangerous
But in just one moment, your blue wraps around me
Stay with me till this night is over
Even deeper”

“Oh yeah, let’s make today our secret
Mixed with the rain, our love song is spreading
Show me more, your light, all right
Stay in me, all night
Until the very last moment, stay next to me”

“Feels like a close, it’s coming to
F*ck am I gonna do?
It’s too late to start over
This is the only thing I, thing I know”

“I know what it was like, I was there once, single parents
Hate your appearance, did you struggle to find your place in this world?
And the pain spawns all the anger on”

“And there was a lot of bizarre shit, but the crazy part
Was soon as I stopped saying "I gave a f
ck”
Haters started to appreciate my art"

“So this is for every kid who all’s they ever did was dreamt of one day just getting accepted
I represent him or her, anyone similar, you are the reason that I made this song
And everything you’re scared to say don’t be afraid to say no more”

Please vote on this poll so I know your preferences!

"Trapped in a maze of decisions
Exhausted by all the different chaos
We’ve wandered around, looking for the answer
Lost in the maze, in the darkness"

"People say
That I’ll end up a fool
But I don’t wanna use my head
I don’t wanna calculate
Love ain’t a business
Rather like a fitness
I’ve never been in a calculating love"

"All the girls on the block knocking at my door
Wanna know what it is, make the boys want more"

"Take a sip of my secret potion
I’ll make you fall in love
For a spell that can’t be broken
One drop should be enough
Boy, you belong to me
I got the recipe and it’s called Black Magic
(And it’s called Black Magic)"
