So lately I’ve been playing around with Canva, and I’ve come up with a new image for my “What If?” Writing Prompts segment! To be honest, I’ve felt for a while that it was time for a change, so today I’m debuting this new “social media friendly” image with a fresh set of fantasy and science fiction prompts! See what new stories you can write based on these ideas, and feel free to add more of your own! Enjoy!
What if… in the future, wars were waged entirely by artificial intelligence with no human input?
What if… you died, only to wake up and discover you’d been living in a virtual reality all along?
What if… you switched bodies with an extraterrestrial and had to find a way to switch back before it could destroy your home?
What if… you spent so much time in virtual reality that you couldn’t tell the difference between the real world and the virtual world anymore?
What if… you brought home a mysterious rock you found… that turned out to be a dragon egg?
Good luck writing more stories in science fiction and fantasy!
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!
