Writing Prompts


“If you can guess how many ones are in my wallet, I’ll give you both of them.”


Levels of obedience: Obey out of fear; Obey to gain a reward; Obey out of love.


Doors in floors. The fastest one scores.


Instead of a screen-saver, have a screen-Savior. An image of Jesus on your computer.


If you consider every word an expandable idea with infinite possibilities, then this word prompt is its own LIBRARY.


Want to do your own writing to the prompts? Here is a list of seventeen writing prompts. If the seventeen below aren’t enough for you, use the five above as well. When writing to a prompt, you can really do any kind of style you want. What does the prompt bring to your mind first? Do you instantly get a storyline in your head? Do you reminisce about something? Does the prompt throw you in a completely different direction? All of these are acceptable. Write whatever you want!

This is where I'm supposed to brag about how I've written seven novels, twelve screenplays, thousands of short stories, four self-help books, and one children's early-reader, but I'd rather stay humble. You can find out about things I've written or follow my barchive (web archive, aka 'blog) at xenosthesia.com or follow me on twitter @kurt_gailey. I love sports and music and books, so if you're an athlete or in a band or you're a writer, give me a follow and I'll most likely follow you back. I've even been known to promote other people's projects.
