My apologies, but I must leave you all with another set of “What If?” Writing Prompts this week. As I finish preparing for the defense of my Master’s thesis, it seems the only thing on my mind these days is science, so I thought it would be appropriate to share some more fantasy and science fiction prompts. Have fun writing new stories from these ideas, and feel free to add more of your own!
What if… a massive meteor were heading toward Earth… and only you knew how to stop it?
What if… you found a capsule in your backyard containing an alien artifact?
What if… you were granted the power to shape-shift into one magical creature of your choice?
What if… you could learn the ability to breathe fire or ice?
What if… magic were a field of science?
Good luck spinning more tales 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!
