Writing Prompts Freebie for the 15th: Historical Fiction

Writing Prompts Freebie for the 15th: Historical Fiction

Writing Prompts Freebie for the 15th: Historical Fiction

This month's freebie for the fifteenth are some historical fiction writing prompts. The first six pages have a written prompt. The second set of six pages are the same picture prompts without any written suggestions. 

To download the prompts, click on the next link:

Writing prompts begin with an image to allow freedom of thought and creative juices to flow. Some writing groups have a timer, everyone uses one prompt, and then share what they wrote. Some groups begin with a prompt "to get the cobwebs out" and some end with a short writing time. Some people might write a flash fiction piece. Some writers will find a use for a current piece they are working on, so they may go home and insert it in a file. Some people may sit and pout or leave if it isn't a good day for a quick write! 

The link will allow you to have a copy of the document for your own use. You will also be able to edit the given word prompts for your own purposes. The images are all from Pixabay.com which offers images free for commercial use. The old correspondence may encourage a few writers.

This rural farm building might inspire a few writers. There are four other pictures in the PDF.
