Teen Weekly Summer Writing Prompt!

Bored on a summer afternoon? Want to flex your writing creativity? These weekly prompts might help create some inspirational ideas! Check back every Monday for a new one. 

Week of 7/9:

Find a random book. Open it to a random page. Without looking, put your finger on a random word. Use that word as the first word to your story about heartbreak.

Week of 7/1:

What’s the first thing you remember? That is, what is the first memory you have about yourself as a young child? What happened? Who was there? Where were you? Why do you remember it all these years later? Write about what could’ve happened but didn’t. Write about everything going differently than how you remember it. Write about it from another person’s perspective that may have been there. Would it have any effect on your life now?

Week of 6/24:

They say “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” While this may be true (or maybe not!), write about how green the grass is on your side of the fence. That is, write about everything marvelous in your life. Write about how wondrous it is to be alive.

Week of 6/17:

Write your entire life story in one page. Don’t forget to include anything that is important in order to understand the real you. Really.
