Creating compelling dialogue? Or vivid settings or interesting characters? How about creating strong openings? Crafting more effective sentences and phrases? What about eventful plots and satisfying endings? Who couldn’t use help in these areas? Look no further than www.nownovel.com/blog/50-creative-writing-prompts/

Whenever we come across or think up a good (or even not-so-good!) writing prompt, we’ll post them to hopefully inspire some writing. To access them, simply click on “Writing Prompts” on the menu above or on the drop-down “Topics” menu on the right sidebar.

They chase the dragon’s shadow across the fields, arms outstretched and roaring as only six-year-olds know how. That’s their big secret: they’ve domesticated polar bears.
