Writing Prompts: Tell a Story

creative writing

Welcome to Scene Stealers, our series of writing prompts designed to boost your creativity.

We’re thrilled that so many of you are participating in our writing prompt series. (Read the other writing prompts here and add one of your own.)

In case you’re not familiar with Scene Stealers, here’s how it works:

  • We set the scene
  • You steal it, make it your own, and
  • Share your creation in the comments section of this post

 Now for the ground rules:

  • You must use the exact wording we provide somewhere in your story.
  • Your story must be 350 words or less.
  • Your work must be original and not previously published.
  • WTD provides an encouraging and safe environment for writers to grow and learn from each other. We’d love you to comment on other people’s submissions in a friendly and supportive manner.

This week’s instalment of our writing prompts is designed to develop your storytelling skills.
