You can even write a powerful short story with a small prompt!
you want to write about: life’s happenings, a tragedy in your life, a deep memoir, magic, advanced science, realistic contemporary stories, but you just can’t figure out how to go from the genre and character development to a writing a novel.
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.
Write a scene or story that describes the strange things happening the hotter it gets. Pick one item you find interesting and imagine who its past owner(s) was. Why did they end up donating it to the thrift store?
This natural inertia that makes those first steps so hard is why young writers need warm-ups.
These pre-writing activities and kid-friendly writing warm-ups provide structure for thinking about the writing task and a low-risk way to take those first forward motions.
You can swipe it on the ground, against a rough surface, use your own nail, or even light it with another match that’s already burning.
All you need is one writing prompt to light your imaginative fire and you can burn through a book idea, formulating the plot and all with just a single prompt.
