Writing Prompts #4

Here’s the next post in the series of writing prompts. I hope these help to get the creative juices flowing.


Writing prompts:

  • Start with this line: Why is this light blinking at me?
  • Your local florist is also an ax murderer, and she leaves a particular type of flower at each scene as a calling card. Either have the flowers make the case much easier to solve or incredibly more confusing.
  • For whatever reason, the country of Australia decides to break up its continent into dozens of smaller countries. Everything goes as planned until the smallest chunk now wants to invade the largest.


For a list of 1,000 writing prompts just like this, check out my book, The Idea Factory: 1,000 Story Ideas and Writing Prompts to Find Your Next Bestseller.
