Writing Prompts

I was searching for writing prompts for myself when I came across an author’s website where she was charging for them. That didn’t sit right with me, so I came up with my own prompts which I’m sharing with you. Enjoy!

  1. Write the first sentence of a cozy murder mystery but use the words “green” and “rendezvous.”
  2. It is modern day. You are standing in line at the post office. Your favorite 19th century writer just walked in. What do you do or say?
  3. Your cell phone rings. You answer and it’s the FBI. What happens next?
  4. You discover an unpublished Jane Austen manuscript. What is the title?
  5. You find your late great-grandmother’s diary from 1917. Assume you can read the language in the diary. What’s the most interesting entry you read? Write it diary-style.

Feel free to leave your own writing prompts in the comments.

xoxo, Jane
