How many hours do you waste reading amazing collections of writing prompts without actually writing anything? You are not alone, most writers have been guilty of this at some point. However, when we do sit and finish the story to a writing prompt it feels good.
I once heard it said, ” No writer loves writing, they love having written.” I both agree and disagree with that statement. As a writer I do enjoy writing, but I love reading what I have done. The knowledge that I have accomplished something feels exceptionally good. So, I know, if you stop reading the writing prompts, choose one, and start writing, you too will feel good. Try it.
With these thoughts in mind here is part 3 of Finish Story Writing Prompts.
Today’s Writing Prompt
Back on to Pin it. Onto my saved collections of amazingness from the writing community. What do I want to write about?
This writing prompt came from… you know, I’m not sure. I find these all over the place. Instagram, iFunny, imgur, zara, ift – oh wait! This one looks promising. The Writers Store Room. I found the owner of amazing, you should defo check them out.
This one is very open, you have no idea about the amount of characters, no clue to the type of world, not much information at all. this is not a bad thing. Let your creative juices flow.
My plan for this one. I’m just going to write. I’m not going to think much. Just write. Let me know what you think of the results.
My Answer To The Prompt
A shimmering mist stood in the path. There was no way around it, to get to the street beyond one must walk through it. The trio knew as they watched it that this was a bad idea, not one of them could say why, but they felt in their hearts, coursing through their veins. This mist was dangerous, more dangerous than anything they had come across before.
As one, they decided it was not worth it and turned their backs on the mist, as one they realised this was a mistake, as one they ducked and screamed in horror as the mist stormed at them, the screams of a thousand tortured souls ringing in their ears.
It stopped. They got shakily back to their feet and looked at each other, then they looked around. “Well, this is new,” James commented looking at the new world before them.
After Writing Thoughts
Ooooh, this is the start of a good book I wish I had time to write. I could so use this. Where have they ended up? Another time? Another planet? Another place? A parallel world?
Why did they all have the same feeling of ‘nope’ when they saw the mist? Why did they take the shortcut in the first place? how old are they? whi are they? What’s going on? Even I don’t know the answers yet but I’d love to sit and write them.
This is one of the things that make writing prompts so good. I never would have thought of these on my own.
