Shannii's Fantasy Writing Prompts - Come here for inspiration!


#21

I’ve been on your blog before, it really provides some helpful stuff- you seem really experienced. :grinning:

Prompt: After a tragic accident, you realize that you’ve died, and that you’re in the afterlife, but something is very, very wrong. You were never supposed to be there. You were never supposed to die.

feel free to correct me on grammar, I’m not the best at it, but I do try in getting better at it :sweat_smile:. This prompt came to me and I thought it would be great to add to your list!

I like that prompt! I’d consider another word for the first word because “soon” makes it seem like you’re halfway through a description and we missed the first part, but apart from that, it’s really good!

@ShanniiWrites
I’m signing up for the College Days Story contest but I’m blank
So I wanted it to be something like this:

  • A spy story
  • She meets her long lost sister
  • She experiences Love,Murder and Pain

I also need a plot and a story title so I would be honoured if you could help me

Hiya! That’s interesting! How about something like this:

You always knew you were adopted. What you didn’t know, however, is that you have an identical twin sister… well, that is until a government agency captures you and accuses you of being a spy gone rogue. Now it’s your job to find your sister at a prestigious university and discover what she’s up to without alerting any of the students or staff members… before anyone gets hurt…

@ShanniiWrites

Your a life saver!
Do you want to be credited ?


#27

@ShanniiWrites
Can you also help me on a title?


#28

Just a story recommendation in your story/insta would be great thanks :blush: mine is The Queen of Freaks.

I love Double Agents xD because they’re twins… but I can think of some others too!

Quick writing question…

What’s the best way to write/research a culture that you want to implement into your writing but know nothing about?


#30

@ShanniiWrites
of course I’m always ready for suggestions

I would start by asking questions! See if you can find someone from the culture and look it up! The internet is always a good place for some facts and information, but if you can get to a library, even better.

Split the culture into multiple areas you’d like to research: food, religion, clothing, politeness/rudeness/manners, legends, ghost stories, important locations, language, idioms…

The more you know about these, the better. Try and think outside of th box. People forget to check things like… if the same things are polite and rude in the culture. Like, in my culture, it’s rude to give someone shoes as a gift!

When it comes to language, don’t just google what the language is, google things like the grammar. See if it’s fairly similar to English or very different. Language has a massive impact on the way we think!

I think a good measure of if you’ve done enough research is if you’ve only used about 10% of your research as obvious references or examples in your story. The rest should be there to help you frame your point of view!

Thanks, I have someone helping me with the different culture I’m putting in my story, but I know I’ll have to do some research on my own! This is very helpful! :blush:
