So you wanna be a writer? A writing prompt.

Today is going to be a longer prompt than usual, so hopefully, we can make a more substantial piece of writing out of it.

So, here’s what I want you to do:

Find an object. It can be anything; a shell, a bottle, a watch or a feather, for example.

In note form, describe the object using your five senses. What does it look like? Smell like? Feel like? taste like? sound like?

Write down two places where you would find the object.

What were your feelings when you found the object?

If the object was alive, how would it move?

How would it sound?

How would it speak?

Give the object a memory. Write down one.

Turn the object into a creature.

Now, write a piece putting together all the above. It can be as short, or as long, as you want.

Good luck!

Let me know how you get on 🙂
