Creative Writing Prompts: Keys
Today, we will kick-off our writing prompts with a phrase,
"I want a key to. . . "
Please write for 5 minutes without stopping.
After that, your assignment will be to turn your free-write into a poem of 10 lines or less.
Fiction Writing Prompt:
Write the first page of a story that has the word key as the first line. Here are some example lines you can use or you can make up your own:
1. She never dreamed that she would find the key to. . .
2. Jake was quite sure that the key he stole would open the door to that house on the hill they said was haunted. . .
3. She always dreamed of keys. . .
After you get your first page, you can certainly continue if you'd like.
Write an essay of 500 words or less about keys or write about something prompted by a specific key from your life.
