Writing Sparks: May 2014

Writing Sparks LogoHere’s a new batch of mix and match prompts to stir your creativity. Where will the muse take you this month?


November story ideas are the ones to pitch this month if your target publication has a six-month lead time. American Diabetes Month is observed this month, as well as the traditional U.S. Thanksgiving Day. This year also marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall (Nov. 9th). Homemade crafts/recipes often run this month, as well.


The month of May means prom season is upon us. Write a story that has something (anything, really) to do with a big dance event.


Create a character based on yourself at 16.


An abandoned haunted island.


Set aside an afternoon this month to do digital spring cleaning. Unsubscribe from those e-newsletters you never read, clear out the languishing messages in your email account, and read all those blog posts you bookmarked so you could get back to them later.


Do you have a writing spark to share? Post it in the comments!
