16 Writing Prompts to Get Those Creative Juices Flowing

Updated: Oct 8

So you've got writers' block? Or are you looking for a topic for your English assignment? Maybe just for a fanfic? Or are you browsing prompts for no reason?

Whatever the reason is, I got you 16 prompts that might even be the base of the best story you've ever written! (The original title was "16 Prompts Which May or May Not Potentially Be Your Bestselling Novel" but I figured that that title's too long.)


1- Person A was supposed to take the bus to school but ends up on the Knight Bus instead.

2- "That was the worst way things could turn out."

"Wanna bet?"

"No, you always win. Literally."


3- Person A is stuck invisible, as a result of experimental failure/magical accident, but s/he can still be felt and bumped into.

4- Person A, your average, everyday accountant, wins the lottery. No, not a million dollars. The lottery to Aurora's Castle in Disneyland!

5- Snow White come alive: a person wakes up to find out s/he can talk to animals.

6- Person A discovers their do-good, perfectly kind, ideal #1 role model is just really good at hiding the fact that they're the world's #1 most wanted criminal.

7- A classic: surprise birthday plan ... but in the year 2350 ... in space! (Preferably on Venus *music plays*)

8- Your favorite fandom is the IRL thing, and your life story is their most popular fandom.


9- Disney-Marvel crossover ... maybe Peter Pan meets Flash Thompson? Or does Princess Merida meet Hawkeye?

10- (I saw this one on Tumblr) A guy is elected president, but changes his mind and instead orders ridiculous things which turn out to be helpful for the country!

11- You wake up as a 15-year-old teenage girl in France, who was in a coma for 6 months ... in the year 1944! Everything you've seen in your life was all unreal. Or was it ...?

12- Person A never dreams. Ever. Until one night, s/he has an accident and ends up dreaming every weekend - which come true within the next few days.

13- There are 24-hours left before a self-destructive bomb goes off and Earth is vaporized. What is mankind planning to do?

14- "You're can't be rich. You're too nice."

"Excuse me? I just bought Amazon."

15- "Well, at least the Leaning Tower of Pisa is over there."

"We're in Cairo!"

"Hey, it isn't leaning now."

"That's the last thing I'm worried about."

16- You wake up in a celebrity's bed. It's Freaky Friday all over again, except said celebrity doesn't even know you.

Welp, that's all (for now). I hope at least one of them is alright with you! If you do use one then send me a link - I'd love to read it. And until next time :)
