So we started the weekly Reedsy Writing Prompts Contest.
Here's how our contest works: every Friday, we send out a newsletter containing five story prompts.
[description]Get daily creative writing prompts for your short story, fiction or nonfiction novel, essay and more at Writers [/description] [keywords]writing prompts, creative writing prompts, expository writing prompts, writing prompt[/keywords]Begin with something familiar from your own life—such as a past event, something you know how to do, a character inspired by someone you know, or a place from your life—and put it in a fictionalized scene or story. What does the world as we know it look like when it faces certain doom? It keeps getting hotter, and things are also getting weirder. Take a trip to the thrift store, or think about your latest trip.
Imagine that you are a character from a classic tale pitching your memoir to a literary agent. Write your query letter, story synopsis, or elevator pitch to the agent.
If you've ever sat in front of a computer or notebook and felt the urge to start creating worlds, characters, and storylines — all the while finding yourself unable to do so, then you've met the author's age-old foe: writer's block.
There's nothing more frustrating than finding the time but the words to be creative. If you're ready to kick writer's block to the curb and finally get started on your short story or novel, these unique story ideas might just be your ticket.
A winner is picked each week to win and is highlighted on our Reedsy Prompts page.
WTF is a 30 minute block of time each Friday that the Astrohaus team spends freewriting.
It started as an internal initiative, but now anyone can join us from around the world.
