NaNoWriMo Writing Prompt

Posted by at 7:08 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink

Rainbow_penNaNo what? If you missed Carly's post about National Novel Writing Month, then you probably have no idea what I'm talking about. But for all you writers out there (and I know you guys are amazing writers. I've seen your fanfic on the Message Boards!), the goal for NaNoWriMo is to write a novel by the end of November. I have no doubt you can do it. After all, it can be as long or as short as you want! So here are a few suggestions from the NaNoWriMo Young Writers website to get you started. . .

  • Write a story where the character's meal talks to him or her.
  • Write a story where the character has a camera that can take pictures of the future.
  • Write a story where the character has a cute little brain-eating zombie kitten as a pet.
  • Write a story about an unusual afterschool club.

Do you have other ideas for great stories? Tell us in the Comments! What will YOUR next story be about?
