22 Creative Writing Prompts
You cant just expect creativity to fall head over heels in love with you, relationships take effort, and if you dont work on making creativity fall for you, it just wouldnt come by. I mean, they did say one mans trash is another mans gold. Inksplore being a content writing services company has all the reasons to slacken and get cocky, but the truth is, we cant afford to do so. Creativity is all about efforts and fervor, and whats a better way to improvise it all than by trying to build from a few prompts?
Here are some creative writing prompts for you to work your way up:
- A fusion of ideas
Intercultural relationships are always a fun idea to explore, both in real life and the fiction world. Construct any form of relationship between your two characters coming from different cultures and make them meet at a space where they share the same issues. Write in third persons POV how each of them look at the problem, how their perspectives differ and how they exchange solutions and thereby build a standing relationship. Eg. Stacy from UK meets Djokovic belonging to Russian ethnicity in her community college, they both are a part of the same club, and somehow, both of them face pressing mental health issues due to financial and family problems. Figure out how theyd both look at it and help each other too, write out their conversations and thought processes.
- The Silver Lining
As a professional content writing company, the need to keep our minds and hearts open while letting the creativity burn has always been a need. Yet emotions, both negative and positive tend to cloud our minds, hence hindering the creativity. But this shouldnt and wouldnt stop us. One of the creative writing prompts we urge you to try is pick a negative situation, and write about the horrendous elements of it. Now find the silver lining in it, no matter how bad things are, theres always something good. Find the good in a negative situation, and write it all-the pain and the beauty.
- The Innocence
One of the strongest emotions in this world happens to be love. Write anything related to your first love/crush or your beautiful wedding story (if you had one yet). Your relationship with your beloved is perhaps one of the most treasured things in your life, think about something extremely beautiful that happened between you two, and write away! We promise you, this works.
- Out there, in there
Mysteries tick us all off. I mean, we could be web writers, and providing proofreading services 24/7 at Inksplore, but every once in a while, we quench our creative thirst by picking up a mystery novel just for the thrill of it. But what makes us better writers is when we begin writing mystery of our own. The prompt goes like this: youre on a camp with your friends, just roaming around and pitching a tent, but as you dig, you find a box. It seems as though it is decades old, rusty, wooden and whatnot. Let your creativity play and write about the box and its contents, and how that makes or breaks your trip. You can find more scenarios as such here.
- The Confusing Triangle
Deep conversations are the best. While proofreading and editing, a lot of thought goes into making the content prim and proper, but at Inksplore, as professional proofreading service providers, we do slip into the deeper realms of this world.
Imagine three friends sitting on the mountaintop, one of them begins to say, You know how. Well, now its your job to complete the sentence, and craft the story. When we do this, usually we come up with some really deep stuff that leaves us shook.
- Go Dramatic
The elite are complicated, the commoners said. Well, weve always found it funny to write a messy situation where a commoner ruins the sophisticated ways of the elite, albeit nothing too much. Imagine a celebrity attending the premiere and the world goes gaga over her, but theres just one person who wants to show her that she too is a human who doesnt need to act high and mighty. Now send the said person to the premiere and describe what he/she does to straighten the crooked bones. This is great to bring the creative comedian in you. As technical content writers, we too need humor to lighten things up.
- Mission Escape
Write about a character who does something evil or just a tad bit bad, even if the character is a kid. Now make the character devise a plan to get away with it leaving no traces. This prompt doesnt really need a character, for all, it could be your story when you got away doing something bad telling no soul.
- Word it
SEO content writing or even academic content writing is basically just all about fusing words together, and thats what we do here after due research of course. To up your creativity, take these words and construct a great piece of writing with it. Also, remember, creativity has no boundaries, so dont restrict yourself. Here are the words: play, wander, run, lost, hide, darkness, depth, fear, scream, loved, trembling, hope and out. Also refer here for more such ideas!
- An affirmation Statement
Chances are for you to be feeling generally low during your writers block phase. We understand how youd reprimand yourself for nothing. But dont let the negative demon consume you, rather turn it around. When youve got nothing to write, write about yourself, good and great things. What youve accomplished, what you aim to accomplish, the features that you love, the features that youd eventually learn to love. Write about it all, and make yourself a piece of poetry.
- Whats Peace to you?
We all need an occasional getaway. It could be from the bustling city or the annoying peers. You just have to be somewhere you find yourself breathing and smiling. Take it as you or a character, where does the character go when theyre just too tired of everything? Why do they go there, how does it make them feel? Describe the settings and how their senses (all of them) are awakened when theyre there.
- For the Horror in you
One of our favorites to do is create the beginning of a scenario and leave the fellow creative prompt writing participants to complete the sentence. All the article writing, ghostwriting just doesnt come by in a ghostwriting agency like Inksplore, we sure do have to work on it.
Here are a few scenarios that you can complete:
You enter an abandoned building, a huge door stands right in front of you. As you shake the door and open it, you come across
- For the Lover in you
Writing a love story is an art, and we think some of the heartiest stories are written by those who felt love right and deep. A great creative prompt to evoke further writing could go as follows: in the autumn breeze, nothing really mattered. As lonely as it had been, someone did come along, unexpected and uncalled for. Our first meeting was pretty unusual, it was a lazy day in Brooklyn and..
You see so many people everyday. They all have untold stories, and perhaps, you could tell their story to the world? You may not be able to talk to them, but just by observing someone who you come across frequently in your street or anywhere, you could make an amazing storyline for the unsung hero. Where does your imagination take you when see them, who do you think they are, what would they be thinking? Write it all out!
- The Opening
As best content writing services company, Inksplore has always stressed about one element-to make the opening dramatic/hooking. When you do write a dramatic opening, the rest of the write-up would just automatically flow because it has always been told that the beginning is always the hardest to begin, as weird as that sounds.
Were sure, it wouldnt just be us who get bored of this Earth at times. We could be a content writing firm, yup, that includes SEO content writing, blog content writing and so on, but every once in a while, we too would love to enter the fantasy world to explore new possibilities. Imagine theres a faraway planet where you could possibly have your new home and everything that you wished was here, perhaps one or two alien siblings too. Fuse it all up and create a fantasy world and write about it.
- The Unknown Poet
Here is the thing about poetry- a lot of us think we cant do it, but once we try, we might as well be better than good. Its no biggie to pitch into the world of poetry, all you have to do is feel. Feel anything deeply and write, dont care to rhyme, just write your heart out. Thats the only advice we can give you.
- The Sad Saga
As happy as we are writing for the web, we do love to write something extremely distressing just for the sake of boosting our creativity, and also because it is just so beautifully, sadly fun. Here is your prompt to go about writing: and then minutes became hours, and hours seemed to stretch into months, but he just never called me back, what could possibly be wrong with the man who loved me the most?…
- A Century Back
Going into the historical world opens endless possibilities for us to explore. Try writing a scenario from the history- possibly the story of a soldier in the World War 2, or the boy who printed papersduring the paper revolution, or the girl who was sold to the curses of slavery. It could be anything, put yourself on the shoes of your ancestors and let the pen talk.
- A little younger
Young-adult writing is always fun and so very real. Dealing with insecurities, keeping up with grades and relationships, handling it all together isnt really easy. As a creative writing prompt, write about Dia who has a hard time loving her body, yet is deeply empathetic towards the humanity and manages to find beauty in everything except herself. Write a day in her life or an entire story about her journey towards loving her body, all you have to do is talk a little younger. As professional ghostwriters, we at Inksplore ensure to adapt the voice of our clients, and thats how we know that talking from the perspective of someone else can make us darn creative.
Magic makes the impossible possible. Imagine a world where you had such powers, what would you do, how would a day in your life be, what would you do for others and what kind of a magical human would you be? Write these out as a story, and let your imagination float in its own course.
- A story within a story
Write a story where the character narrates a story. This is a great way of improvising creativity as said by the best ghost writing service providers at Inksplore. Why? It is because not only does this give a chance to speak in a single point of view, rather it goes deeper to explore the world within the character. It is quite enthralling really. We always suggest our readers to make this character an old and wise person for the gems theyd end up dropping are mighty!
- A Solitary Journal
Sometimes being alone is what youd want. We totally understand. Inksplore is the best content writing services company in Chennai, needless to say, we have to keep our creativity flowing. Often, all we need for that is some lone time to think and jot down the words. To improve your creativity, you dont have to do much, grab a diary, jot down whatever youre thinking, it could be poetry or about the bird across or an agonizing pain. Just begin writing. Rest will figure out.
