A Fiction Writing Prompt exploring the topic of light. The aim to stretch your literary muscles. No rules. No word counts. Simply write and explore. Light is the topic for this prompt.
As the light flickered on she understood; both the reason for the silence and the explanation to not being told
Writing prompt expanded
This week’s fiction writing prompt ties into my weekly prompt word; light. If you take a look at light in the dictionary you’ll find many uses for it and many meanings. Put light into a thesaurus and the possibilities stretch further. However, in this prompt, I have focussed on the aspect that light illuminates and makes clear.
Because we need light to see, and light is one of our senses, it plays an integral part in our lives. If we have difficulty seeing and/or are visually impaired you’ll understand the importance and the associated feelings with not seeing something.
The prompt is deliberately open. Something or someone has been hidden, but now the light has come on, they, or it has been revealed. But what? And that’s the writing challenge. Here are some ideas, but the list is almost endless:
- a forgotten, now returned relative
- a partner found in a compromising situation
- a dead body
- a known associate now revealed as someone else
- an item thought lost
- a surprise party
Those are just a few ideas, but have fun exploring and writing about your own if you want.
As always these writing prompts are optional and entirely open to your 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, use the hashtag #ffwp or tag me @darrenrhill. I’d love to read what you create. Write and enjoy the learning process.
