February 2022 Writing Prompt

For the year 2022, we are going to focus on different writing styles/formats to create a story. To start, think about how many characters you will want to be in your story. Have these characters write letters, emails, or texts/instant messages, to each other as your writing style for the first month. Through these message exchanges, let the reader know about your characters, their names, and any other info you want that will be important for moving the story forward. These message exchanges may show what the characters are currently doing, things they plan to do, issues they are facing, etc.

 

March 2022 Writing Prompt

For March we are going to do descriptive only. You can either continue your story you started in January or you can create another short story that is descriptive only. This can be where you describe the meetup or what was mentioned in your letters/emails/texts last month that will help you when leading up to April.

 

April 2022 Creative Writing Prompt

For April you’re going to turn your story into a manga/comic. You can either continue the story you’ve been working on since February or you can create a short story in this writing style.  At this point you have just finished emails, texts, or letters between your characters and now you can use the pictures as a way to show what was described in those letters. Manga/Comic style involves pictures and words and if you need inspiration or an idea you can always refer to the teen room where many manga and comics are.

 

May 2022 Creative Writing Prompt

Last month you started to turn your story into a manga/comic and now we’re going to dabble into point of view. This month you’re going to make your story the point of view of your main character. This means no third point of view, no second point of view, only first. You can continue the story you were making from February through April or you can create a short story. The point of view of your main character will involve the use of “I”, “me” or “we”.

 

June 2022 Creative Writing Prompt

Last month you turned your story into the point of view of your first main character and now we’re going to switch it around and do your second protagonist or most seen character. You can either continue the story you’re making but in the second character's point of view or you can show the point of view from the story you created last month. You can also work on a short story for the month of June, it does NOT have to be a long type of story if you prefer short stories.

 

July 2022 Creative Writing Prompt

Last month you changed your point of view to be the second protagonist or most seen character. This month you’re going to do Shakespearean. You must write this month's short story or continue your long story that you have made throughout the months starting from February in Shakespearean. So, no usual writing for your story but instead you’re gonna have to think hard and use some resources in order to write Shakespearean.

 

August 2022 Creative Writing Prompt

Last month you wrote your story in Shakespearean. This month you will continue your long story or make a short story in Thriller/Mystery. This means that you must write in Thriller/Mystery and not in any other genre but you can write in any point of view. Examples to help you think of things could be possibly having your main characters find an item that is super important and lead them on a scavenger hunt (kind of like Jumanji).
