Church Camp

Use the writing prompt below to write a scene.

You and your friends have gone to church camp for the week. One morning, you are on your own, so you decide to hike through the woods to a nearby stream. After spending a few moments by the water, you hear something behind you. What – or who – is it? What does it want? And what do you do?

The Camping Trip

The season of summer vacations is upon us. Use the writing prompt below to write a scene.

You and your significant other decide to hike through the mountains in the Pacific Northwest for your summer vacation. You’re ready to unplug and unwind for a few days. As the sun sets on your first night in the woods, you hear something thrashing in the woods nearby. You go to investigate and find tufts of fur all over the ground and even up high in the trees. What was there? Was it Bigfoot? An animal? What happened to it?

The Thunderstorm

Use the writing prompt below to write a scene using auditory (sound) imagery and thermal (sense of hot and cold) imagery.

You take your dog for a walk in the woods near your home. You have gone only a short way when the wind picks up and your dog starts to whine. You feel a few drops of rain. Before you can turn to leave, the sky opens up and begins to pour. What do you do?

The Black Cat

Use the following writing prompt to inspire you.

You and your significant other are taking a walk in the woods. You see a black cat cross your path ahead. Wondering where he’s going, you strike out into the woods to follow him. About 200 feet into the woods, you come to a clearing. The cat is sitting in the middle of the clearing, cleaning his paws. Then, the cat vanishes and is replaced by a magnificent image. What do you see?
