Writing_prompt_genericWriting Prompt: Funny City Names

Quick quiz! Can you guess what the following names are?

  • Pee Pee
  • Gross
  • Monkey’s Eyebrow
  • Boring
  • Cow Springs
  • Fluffy Landing
  • Last Chance
  • Did you guess what they are names of? Well, believe it or not, they are all names of U.S. cities or townships. (Actually, you should believe it because it’s true!). Which brings me to today’s Write On Writing Prompt by Addison:

    If you could make up a name for a city, what would you name it? Be as creative as you can.

    You never know; maybe one day, you’ll see your city name on a map like the wacky list above. And in case you were wondering, here are the city/state match-ups:

    • Pee Pee, Ohio
    • Gross, Kansas
    • Monkey’s Eyebrow, Kentucky
    • Boring, Maryland
    • Cow Springs, Arizona
    • Fluffy Landing, Florida
    • Last Chance, Colorado

    So let Addison know your made-up city names in the Comments below, but please don’t tell us the real cities where you live!

      I would probably do Full Moon, Florida. That’s because I think that FL has clear skies all the time so you could see the moon and who knows, there are always werewolves around.

      I think an awesome/crazy name would be Happyville because everyone there could never be sad or deppressed! :-)
