Creative Writing Prompts: Justice


Writing, Writing Prompts / Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

We all need a kick in the creative butt every now and then. Perhaps you don’t have time to work on your current project. Perhaps you don’t even have a project. You like to live dangerously, don’t you? Well, I’ve got some challenges that may kickstart your muse. Grab a pen and a lucky sock. Let’s get that ink flowing.

What You Need

A female main character who is a police officer and new on the job. Very eager. Has some secrets.
Urban setting.
Dash of sarcasm.
Feel free to add a love interest where you see fit. A colleague, neighbour, or superior?

Prompts

  1. Your main character has just finished her first shift. She’s exhausted but excited. She arrives at her apartment and the door is ajar. Nobody has a spare key. She enters the apartment with her phone in her hand. Right between her comfy sofa and her IKEA dining table is a man in a suit. He lights up a┬ácigar and observes her. What happens next?
  2. Your main character discovers a body during a call about a breaking and entering. Her partner is at the front, while she’s in the back garden. She hears leaves rustle and realises someone is running away through the woods behind the house. What happens next?
  3. Your main character gets a phone call from her younger sister. She’s been living with her boyfriend of a few months. She’s crying and she realises he’s beaten her. She drives straight over, her hair still wet from the shower and a baseball bat in the passenger’s seat. What happens next?
  4. Your main character is trying to explore the dating world. She’s had a boring date and is now on one that is going well. That is until he wants a bit more from her than she’s willing to give. Describe this scene. What happens next?

How is the typing going? I think you’ve got enough to get inky. Have fun and why don’t you share an excerpt of what you wrote down below…

I am very happy to read this. This is the type of manual that needs to be given and not the accidental misinformation that’s at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this greatest doc.
