Do you wish you could communicate better with the special people in your life? Sometimes it’s hard to talk or to come up with something brilliant to say. Other times you may have trouble connecting with family members.

At this time of year, you may be wondering what to give that special family member or friend, but did you know that once in a while, they don’t want a new item. What they really would value is something personal from you.

Use these prompts to jot down your thoughts and ideas and then share them with others. This is your gift to them: you!

Each prompt comes with a free, colorful page you can print out and write on. Collect them all and begin a journal, if you wish. If you plan to give them as gifts, you can give certain pages as presents or gather all the pages into one gift.

These prompts are suitable for people in grades 5 – 12.

Ready? Let’s do this . . .

Do You Have Story Writers? They Will LOVE These Fiction Prompts!

Do You Have Story Writers? They Will LOVE These Fiction Prompts!

SHARON’S BLOG

You know you have them—those story writers who won’t come out of their bedrooms, the ones who faint at writing essays but love writing stories.

They spend hours creating fictional worlds and populating them with characters in trouble who are looking for a happy ending.

Fiction is a powerful tool to influence readers’ hearts. Let’s equip our fiction writers with practices and insights that will give them success. You can read more about how authors grab readers’ hearts here.

As an added bonus, students who learn how to write more effectively in the world of fiction are absorbing communication skills they will use in their essay and research papers as well.

Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein before she was 19 years old. Christopher Paolini was only 15 when he wrote the first words to his best-selling Eragon. And Jane Austen wrote her first novel at age 14. When will your student be signing autographs?

These prompts are geared for students in 7th-12th grade. Use them now or bookmark them for later.
