I love writing prompts. They're a great way to get your writing started, whether you're focused on poetry, short fiction, or personal essays. However, most writing prompts are geared toward getting a piece of writing started. And that's what got me thinking about a new type of prompt, one that can help take an already established story in new directions.
I call them Plot Twist Story Prompts, and I've collected 40 of them in this brand new digital guide: 40 Plot Twist Prompts for Writers: Writing Ideas for Bending Stories in New Directions.
They're perfect for storytellers of any genre and include:
- Sudden disappearances or appearances
- Unexplained phenomena and unexpected powers
- Trips and journeys (and blocked passages)
- Magic, monsters, and missing items
- And so much more!
Basically, these prompts are made to help take your great story idea and infuse it with fun new subplots and possibilities to keep the story fresh for you and your readers.
