A Fiction Writing Prompt to stretch the literary muscles. No rules. No word counts. Simply write and explore.
The song played through the headphones. I was transported when the music came on; a different place, a different time…
Writing Prompt Expanded
Music is powerful. Like the rest of our senses, sound can trigger memories.
This prompt is all about where the music takes you, the time, place and people. It is about creating a memory, a new memory.
- To what time are you transported?
- To what place does the song take you?
- Who are the people that the music brings back to your imagination?
However, this is a fiction writing prompt and not a personal memoir (although you can use it for that if you wish). The idea is to create a memory that doesn’t exist, at least not from your own life. Creating a believable memory can be difficult, so that’s why this is a challenge. Time to improve your fiction writing.
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.
