I saw these deers when I was going on a walk one morning. Write a poem based on this picture.
Anytime I smell a darkroom I think about my college crush Roger. We took photography classes together and flirted as we printed out photographs. Now anytime I smell film fix I think about that moment in my life. The heartbreak and a load of other emotions come rushing back to me.
Write a poem based on a smell that brings back a memory.

It was my last few days in LA and I went around town taking pictures. I wanted to remember the place that was my home for 11 years. As I took the pictures I realized how beautiful the city was. It was like seeing it for the first time. Find place where you live and take a picture. Look at the picture and ask it to tell you a story then write that story town.
Write a story based on this picture. What if your character was locked inside so long that when she finally went outside and the snow melted she or he discovered that the world changed. How does it change? Is it really snow? Maybe the world she/he know isn’t like how it’s suppose to be?
#teen writing prompt
The snow kept on coming and it felt like it would never stop. They said that it was because we destroyed the environment and that’s why it was July and winter was still here. We stored away food and fought to keep the roof of the greenhouse clear so the crops would continue to grow….
Finish the story. What is winter never ended? Write a story about how your characters would survive in this new world.
The road was dark and the willow tress hung over the road like claws reaching out to us but we continued. Fear was a luxury we didn’t have…
What is your characters running from or running to? Image if you were in this place. What would be going through your head. What would you feel? Me, I can feel my heart pound as I think about this place. It’s like holding my breathe forever as I try to calm myself. What is it like for you?
Be creative and have some fun.
You are driving to Florida with your friends. For some crazy reason your parents thought it would be a great idea in order to make you more responsible. You promised to take breaks and be careful. As you stare out the window you notice something happening off in the distance. Just then the car mysteriously stops.
You can’t figure out what’s wrong even though you took auto shop class for the last three years of high school making you the ultimate freak. What did you see off the road? Why did the car mysteriously break down? Write a story about what happens.

It Could Have Been Me
It could have been me. The victim. Without a voice.
I went to that party and everyone was drinking.
It was late.
My friend Scott left me alone.
In a room filled with guys.
I just stayed there all night waiting for the buses to start running.
Except I had to wait until morning.
Even though I was the only girl in a room filled with guys.
But she wasn’t so lucky.
But I was.
But the truth is everyone that all the time everyone should be as lucky as me.
Yes I am sharing my summer picture with you. I took this picture at Island Beach State Park. To get to the beach you have to drive on this back road. On both sides of the road are trees, brush, and dunes beyond the road.
When I am at the beach I get so many ideas for stories. Imagine yourself sitting on the beach. You hear the waves roll up onto the shore. You smell the salt air. The sun beats down on you.
Now these birds were pretty aggressive. They’ll actually dig through your bags and take your food it you’re not careful.
Write a story about this bird and your encounter with him. He doesn’t have to be tame. He could be evil just like the birds in Alfred Hitchcock’s movie The Birds.
Be creative and have fun. Again don;t over edit yourself with the first draft just allow your writing to flow.
