A Fiction Writing Prompt to stretch the literary muscles. No rules. No word counts. Simply write and explore.
It is quiet. The constant background noise has ceased. That means… yes, the rain, it has finally stopped. Can we possibly venture out…
Writing Prompt Expanded
There is plenty of scope for exploration in this prompt. In essence, it is about change and our characters’ reaction.
I haven’t included a setting so you can approach in whatever way the muse leads. It could be a family stuck in a tent on a camping holiday. It could be the remnants of the human race surviving in a shelter from some toxic contaminant.
- How do the characters respond?
- Who is the first outside?
- Who makes the decision?
- What happens when they venture forth?
As always these writing prompts are optional and entirely open to your own interpretation. Use them as a starting point for a short story or something a little more grandiose. If you do write something, please share it or a link, in the comments or tag me. I’d love to read what you create
