A Fiction Writing Prompt to stretch the literary muscles. No rules. No word counts. Simply write and explore.
There were faces all around, looking intently at me, but I recognised none of them
Writing Prompt Expanded
A piece of advice often given to would be writers is to write about what you know. Well, this is a challenge that develops that idea. Here you’re prompted to write about what you don’t know, but for a purpose.
So what has happened?
- Have you just recovered, or woken up from some traumatic experience? Is your memory playing up and not recognising those around?
- Perhaps you’re coming round in the street after a funny turn? The faces are the strangers, or paramedics come to offer aid.
- You might be about to make a presentation or speech, and the unknown faces are the crowd eagerly awaiting your words?
Or it could be something else. 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 #thecreativeminimalist #ffwp. I’d love to read what you create. Write and enjoy the learning process.
