Getting Back Into Fiction Writing

Hey there! If you’ve never been to my blog before, or don’t know much about me, I’m Kenzie. I’ve been writing my entire life, really (Ever since I was able to, at least). Something that has always caught my attention was fantasy books! Everything from Elizabeth Moon to Rick Riordan and in between has been a huge passion of mine. I’ve decided as of lately, to turn my dream of being a writer into reality. I’m going to be posting quite regularly, at least once a week, short stories and prompts to practice, better myself, and of course get my name out there.

This week, to start out the process of living my dream life, is to find some writing prompts and list some of them, let you wonderful individuals choose what you’d like to see me write! I believe it will definitely help me in finding what is most desired as far as fantasy reading material and such!

Below will be a list of prompts to choose from! Make sure to comment which ones you’d like to read!

  • A character finds an odd-looking egg in the forest. When they take it home, they never would have believed what they found inside.
  • A character has always been able to change how they look, always hiding behind attractive disguises, but now their abilities aren’t working, exposing what they truly look like.
  • Once peaceful water dwellers decide to declare war on their once only true allies. My character has no idea why and is thrown into the war against their will.
  • Magic is the current norm. Some excel at it, some are horrible with it, and some refuse to use it and are against it, despite being able to use it. My character is the latter.

  • Write a story about how eight murders have taken place in your character’s town in the past 8 weeks. Once a week, on the same day, at the same time. When your character gets abducted after being out past the town’s new curfew, they have only 48 hours to discover why this is happening and how to get free…all while being tortured by the murderer.
  • A new town, a new job, a new life. Your character moved away to start over and become someone they’ve always wanted to be. The problem? They just can’t seem to stop killing people.
