    How about a story that takes place on a made up/real alien planet. You have to say where it is in the universe and who/what lives there is COMPLETELY up to you! Say it could be Mars but living there is a colony of martian wizards who see J.K. Rolling as their leader.

    My writng prompt ideas were inspired by Disney’s Phineas and Ferb and the Spy Kids series.
    1.) If you’ve ever watched the series “Phineas and Ferb”, then you’d know that Phineas and Ferb build outragous inventions every day. If you could hang out with Phineas and Ferbs for a day, what out-of-this-world invention would you build? Be sure to include loads of details!
    2.) Pretend you find out your parents belonged to a secret organization od spys and they were in danger. How would you feel? Amazed? Shocked? Or maybe even scared? Also, tell about your adventure as you try to save your parents with the help of various spy gadgets!
    I hope everyone enjoys my writing prompts! Special thanks to the creators of the Phineas and Ferb series and the Spy Kids series!

    What happens when you go into your book? Will you fly with the Flock in Maximum Ride by James Patterson? Will you become a spy in the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horotwitz? It’s all up to you!

    you should have us make our own characters in the books that we love to read. maybe even add our opinions if we want to change a part in a story.
