20 Amazing Writing Prompts!

I’ve compiled a list of my top 20 favourite writing prompts, they all come from an Instagram page called Writing.Prompt.s, so if you are interested and enjoy my post, you should check out their Instagram! I love telling stories and I found these specific prompts to be some great starting material. I encourage you to tell your own story in the comments, I will read them all! I’m excited to see what kind of stories fellow Pandas can come up with!

Also, remember, if you enjoy these check out the original Instagram, @writing.prompt.s

I've started writing a story about #10: Chapter 1 I dwindled in the street, dreading the upcoming meeting where I was to judge project proposals. “Hurry, get inside, you’re going to be late!” ushered my co-worker, Jamison. He sped inside, opening his customary black briefcase as he went. I sighed, then followed him reluctantly. By the time I reached the elevators, Jamison was already going up, so I stepped into a nearly full one. The ride going up was slow, for some reason it felt as if the taut metal cords pulling the elevator up had more strain than usual. I brushed the uneasy thought off, dismissing it as a nervous imagination. Finally, after many stops, the elevator reached my floor. As soon as I disembarked, a sharp voice pierced the silence. “CORNING! GET IN HERE RIGHT NOW!” barked my advisor, Gabriel. “Coming,” I rolled my eyes and hurried over to the conference room, my low heels making barely any noise on the heavily carpeted floor. “TODAY, PLEASE!” he boomed.
