Writing Prompts #15

It's been a REALLY long time since I did a writing prompt post. Most of my writing this fall has been centered around my novel and a few short stories. (Those stories did start with a prompt from my prof, but they've grown too long for a blog post.) But I have a couple for y'all now!

Prompt #1: Write a letter to your book and/or your main character(s). Talk about the story and your frustrations and joys with writing it. Feel free to vent, since no one but you is going to read this letter. And you never know; it may help you if you've hit a block in writing the book.

Prompt #2: My profs love to give us ekphrastic prompts (that is, prompts inspired by pieces of art). A lot of them are actually fun to write about! So this prompt is that you are to write either a fiction piece or a poem inspired by the following painting:

"Nocturne in Black and Gold - The Falling Rocket" by James Abbott McNeill Whistler.
c. 1875
Detroit Institute of Arts

OR you can write something inspired by this painting:

"The By Road at the Roches-Cortaut Woods - Indian Summer" by Alfred Sisley
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

Prompt #3: Last one for this post! This is one of my favorite types to do in a promptathon with Elise. Pick up the closest book to you. Either use the first line of the book, or choose a page number and a line number (before flipping to that spot in the book) and use that to start your story.

Good luck, and happy writing! Let me know if you do any of these prompts and how they turn out.
