Carolyn Howard-Johnson shares writers’ resources on her award-winning blog Sharing with Writers
2021 April What If Writing Prompt Free PDF Download
What if questions can be thought-provoking and this month we have some for writing groups to look over and select a few pages to print. Usually, there are six text and image prompts, and six picture prompts. This month there are extra pages of picture only prompts.
First, what if you had new neighbors whose teenage son didn’t want to attend his new school tomorrow? Would you offer to help out? Would you be willing to help out? To help make up your mind, consider the picture of the new family, below.
What if you could win a house by living in it a year? Which house would you choose? Where would it be located? One of the homes is actually in Iceland. What would you pack and would you take family members with you? Would you be able to survive the year?
What if you saw this woman alone in a field? Consider her plight. It appears she has been stranded with her suitcase and an umbrella and is waiting to meet someone. Will the person arrive? What is going on? Where is she?
What if you were forced to live in outer space a full year? There is no way out and you must leave now. Why? What is happening? How would you cope?
What if you were offered a free vacation to whale watch or tour the desert on a camel? Which would you pick, and why?
As always, the text prompts will help some writers and the picture-only prompts will help others. There are several pages from which to pick. Select something that inspires you to write! Some groups may use writing prompts as warm-ups, some may share the writing pieces after a time limit, and some may all select the same prompt. However your group works, we hope you will like these prompts!
Thank you for reading, Carolyn
