Hi u/wayseekerjourney, this submission has been removed.

All submissions must be tagged

  • Existing Content: Prompts are not meant to share stories already written, but to inspire users to write stories. Check our related link wiki for more relevant subreddits. We want to inspire new writing here. Try a prompt that takes authors on a new journey. Not a journey that has already been made

You can post this to the TT thread, or to the sunday free write thread

Hi u/n0rmalhum4n, this submission has been removed.

Direct prompt replies must be good-faith attempts at new stories or poems

  • Fill-in-the-blank: Responses must be at least 30 words. This is essentially a fill-in-the-blank, or you asked a question likely to generate a simple answer. Prompts should encourage a story or poem.

Prompts will be removed if there's a high possibility for rule breaking responses (rule 7)
