Writing Prompt: Alien Planet
This week’s Write On Writing Prompt comes to us from MagicalGriffin3. It’s actually perfect timing because the John Carter movie (rated PG-13) is out, and scientists recently discovered a brand new planet: Keplar-22b. It’s the first Earth-like planet located in the “Goldilocks Zone,” which is a habitable zone discovered in NASA’s recent Keplar Mission. (Get it? Goldilocks – not too hot, not too cold, but just right for sustaining life!) Keplar-22b was previously too far away for scientists to find, but recent telescopes and missions have brought it to our attention. It could possibly have water, which means there could be life on Keplar-22b!!!
. . . which brings me to MagicalGriffin3′s Writing Prompt:
Make up a story that takes place on a made-up/real planet. Where it is in the universe and who/what lives there is COMPLETELY up to you!
It could be Mars, and there is a colony of Martian wizards who see J.K. Rowling as their leader. Would Keplar-22b be ruled by these Martian wizards? Or maybe one-eyed, green, slimy aliens who regurgitate pizza, and feed it to their young?
Make up your own story. Let your imagination travel to infinity and beyond! Anything goes! Let us and MagicalGriffin3 know in the Comments below.
