Here are some more “What If?” Writing Prompts to cover my creative writing posts while I catch up with my grad school work. The theme this week is a genre pairing that I have yet to feature a second time in this segment: mystery and suspense. Enjoy trying out these ideas, and please feel free to add more of your own! Good luck!
What if… you discovered your parents weren’t who you thought they were?
What if… whenever you answered that persistent knocking at your door, nobody were there?
What if… you were followed home by a strange animal?
What if… you couldn’t shake the feeling that someone was watching your every move?
What if… someone you’d never met passed away and left you everything in his/her will?
Have fun writing your own mysterious and suspenseful stories!
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!
