As my Christmas gift to whoever stops by I am going to post a set of story prompts every day from now through New Year’s Day. I will probably post other things as well, but enjoy the writing prompts. Merry Christmas!
Story Prompt Number One: It is the day or two after New Year’s Eve, your point of view character has just woken up and either the memories of the previous night’s celebration are flooding into his/her head or another character is relaying the events. Give the story either a science fiction or fantasy twist.
Story Prompt Number Two: Your point of view character is a servant in a wealthy household. It is the day after a drunken feast and party that included gambling. Guests are sleeping wherever they fell. At the gambling table there is money laying about. No one is around, does the point of view character steal an unrecognizable amount of the money?
Story Prompt Number Three: Your point of view character is the last of a fantasy species. Pick the species and tell their thoughts as they realize they are the last of their kind.
Story Prompt Number Four: A stranger promises your point of view character that he can reunite them with a lost love but there will be a price. The point of view character must designate someone else whose life will become forfeit. To demonstrate the stranger’s power he gives the point of view character a day with the lost love. What does the point of view character do?
Story Prompt Number Five:Your point of view character awakens from slumber to find a ghost standing at the end of the bed. The ghost claims to be a relative of theirs. What happens next?
