Time for another set of “What If?” Writing Prompts. The theme of this week’s batch is mystery and suspense. I don’t have nearly enough experience writing in these genres, so I could definitely have some fun trying out these prompts! I hope you can too! Enjoy!

What If - Parchment and QuillWhat if… you found a wedding ring under your bed… that wasn’t yours?
(Submitted by: Doug Langille)

What if… you thought that strange noise in the house was your cat… only to discover your cat was in the room with you the whole time?

What if… you found an old letter hidden in a library book?

What if… that kind elderly neighbor of yours were keeping a dark secret?

What if… you woke up one day to find that nobody could see or hear you?

Good luck spinning twisted tales full of mystery and suspense!

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!
