Hey guys! Penny here.
I know how hard it is to come up with inspiration for a story, which is why I’ve decided to create this thread! Feel free to add your own writing prompts below, or you can request a genre, and I’ll try to find a good prompt for you.
“You are a professional police officer who has been assigned to the same jewlery store robberies 13 times.
You eventually realize that the first three times there were actula robberies, and the next ten were a ruse by the owner so he could see you again. How romantic! But illegal…
“In an alternate universe, whenever your soulmate writes anything on their arm, it shows up on yours as well.” (For this one it would be cool if they wrote important places to be, and the other person tries to track them down, but that may be just me !
“In an alternate universe, everyone is born with a unique tattoo. When you fall in love with someone, their tattoo shows up on your body as well.”
"Person A enters the library, looking around for the perfect biography for their school project on the shelves. The stumble into a section of the library they’ve never seen before, with only one book on the shelves. The book is titled, A Murder. Intrigued, Person A reads the book. Coincidentally, the MC has the same name as they do. And the main characters story seems quite similar to Person As life. Finally, on the last page on the book it says, “A killers shadow haunts (Person A).”
“Person A wakes up in an abandoned prison with dead bodies littering the floor. There is no escape.”
“You awake in a dark room, with a recording playing inside your ear. ‘One of the people in this room is desperate to kill you. The other two will do anything to save you.’ The lights turn on and there you see your two best friends and your crush.”
“After you’re wrongfully accused of murder, you’re on the run from the police. You meet up with you’re old childhood friend after you haven’t seen them in seven years. Lucky for you, you’re bud happens to be a detective. Can he help you find out who the murderer really is?”
“You walk down the street one day and see a little boy selling newspapers. Since you have nothing else to do, you buy one. You look at it, and realize that the newspaper is dated for the next week, and you realize that the world is coming to an end. And you may be the only one who can stop it.”
“After going on one of the best dates of your entire life, you decide to meet up with Person B again. Although this time the date is rudely interrupted when a news reporter announces something terrorizing the city. You announce you must leave, and so does person B. You later discover person B is a villain. And you are the Superhero who must defeat them.”
“You scroll through your email one day when you come across a email from an address you don’t know. The person claims to be a Nigerian Prince asking for money for some random thing. Out of pity, you give him 75 dollars. A few weeks later, this prince shows up at your door, and agrees to do you one favor in exchange for you kindness.”
“When on a family outing, two young girls accidentally capture a fairy instead of a firefly.”
“Some people, when they die, are lucky enough to , instead of being sent to heaven or hell, get to be a childs imaginary friend. When you die, you are your crush’s little sisters imaginary friend. You must get her to convince him that you’re okay…but not really.”
This will be updated if I find more prompts. Have a good day!
