Ready for another batch of “What If?” Writing Prompts? This week’s post features prompts in two of my favorite genres: fantasy and science fiction! Some clever writers over at Writer’s Carnival have offered interesting suggestions for “What If?” prompts, so be on the lookout for their ideas in this segment (two of them are in this post, while non-fantasy/sci-fi prompts will be featured in later posts). Thanks for the submissions, and be sure to keep the ideas coming! Enjoy!
What if… you woke up in the middle of the night to the sun shining through your window?
(Submitted by: Kelleigh, another of the people behind Writer’s Carnival)
What if… non-human animals were secretly more intelligent than people?
What if… you found out the forest near your house was home to countless mythical creatures?
What if… you knew one of your neighbors was an extraterrestrial… but you didn’t know which one?
Good luck exploring the wonderful worlds of fantasy and science fiction!
If you have any “What If?” writing prompt suggestions (for any theme), please feel free to share them in the comments below. Ideas I like may be featured in future “What If?” posts, with full credit and a link to your blog (if you have one)! Also, if you’ve written a piece based on an idea you’ve found here, be sure to link back to the respective “What If?” post. I would love to see what you’ve done with the prompt! Thank you!
