Writing Prompts:

  1. Paint splattered on a canvas… Think Jackson Pollock.
  2. “Funny colored hat, crazy shoes, weird handbag, and dazzling hair – I’m so ready for this interview!” you think to yourself…
  3. A couple helicopter to a remote island for a romantic dinner and end up being forgotten in an oncoming tropical storm.
  4. Write a story in which exactly five different things go ‘click’.
  5. At Target‘s customer service counter you plead with the representative, “It’s a package deal? What if I just want the package without the deal, or the deal without the package?”
  6. Close your eyes, spin yourself around, then with your eyes still closed, point to something. Open your eyes and write about what you’ve pointed to.
  7. Write a love poem from the perspective of a pirate writing to the woman he loves. Think kim dotcom and his wife with his dots (children) :p
  8. An old man finds a coin that reminds him of a special day from his youth.
