Sometimes writers know exactly what they want to write, and sometimes we need to brainstorm. One of the best ways I’ve found to brainstorm is to just take an idea and riff off it and see what happens.
Since I’m currently at the beach working to a deadline, I thought this would be a perfect week to suggest some writing prompts, both to get the creative juices flowing and also to maybe give you a story idea!.
I’m putting a story in Kindle’s new Vella app that’s about to launch, and it’s a story that was inspired by an incident at my Florida condo where I ended up locked out of my condo in sleep shorts and a rather immodest tank top. (Oops!). That incident inspired a story … so I figured that it’s a good writing prompt for you, too!
So here goes:
What was the funniest thing that happened to you while traveling?
You’re on vacation and all of your luggage is stolen. What do you do?
Ready … go! (mostly, have fun!)
