10 Best Creative Writing Prompts
You get better at any skill through practice, and creative writing prompts are a great way to practice writing.
At the end of every article on The Write Practice, we include a writing prompt so you can put what you just learned to use immediately. And we invite you to share your writing with our community so you can get feedback on your work.
The Write Practice is more than just a writing blog. It’s a writing workbook, and we think it’s the best one on the Internet (of course, we’re a bit biased).
Our Most Popular Creative Writing Prompts
Sometimes, though, you just want to get straight into writing, and so we’ve created this list of some of our most popular writing prompts.
Why not try using two or three in your writing today? Who knows, you might even write begin something that becomes your next novel or short. It’s happened to Write Practice readers before!
Enjoy the list!
