It's Writing Prompt Wednesday!

Coffee Cup Creative's #WritingPromptWednesday is here to help you on your creative writing journey!

Prompts may run the range from a few random words and phrases to thought-provoking questions and highly descriptive visual scenes. How you choose to use the prompts is up to you. Work one or all of them into a short story, comedic skit, or poem, or allow them to spark your imagination in an entirely different direction. There are no rules. Our only goal is you get YOU writing on a regular basis.

This week's prompts:

  • Stranded in an airport over Labor Day Weekend

  • A chance meeting with an old flame

  • Sorry, wrong number

  • Your mother has set you up on a blind date

  • Stuck in an elevator with a celebrity you despise

  • A chance to undo your biggest mistake Weekend Prompt:

Check back weekly for new #creativewritingprompts!
