Writing Prompts and Story Ideas

Starters for Stories is designed to help you find ideas for a story and beat writers block. I’ve divided the story prompts into categories depending on genre, however many can fit more than one genre. You can also mix and match. For example, you might write a horror story using one of the prompts and add one of the romance ideas as a subplot. Or vice versa!

Horror/SF Story Ideas
Romance & Love Story Ideas

There should be plenty there to get your creative literacy neurons firing! So settle down where you do your best writing and let the stories flow.

If you want ideas for something other than writing, I also run Ideassaedi: ideas in all directions.
