Creative Writing Prompts
Write a book!
- A. Composition – Choose a topic and develop a basic premise to a book that you will pretend to write, or really write if you have an especially industrious writer!
- What are some of the important aspects of your story? How would you plan to develop your story for the world?
- The book can be funny, serious, biography, autobiography, fiction, non-fiction – whatever interests you. But treat this assignment as real content for your chosen book and subject.
- If inventing the basic book idea is too hard for your child, then take a book they have read and come up with a similar story and then have them compose a synopsis and then proceed with item B as if they themselves had written the book. You could, as well, provide the synopsis for a younger child.
- Design the cover art for your book.
- Compose a dedication page.
- Write an “about the author” page.
- Compose a letter to a publisher asking them to read and consider publishing your book.
- Write a letter to ask someone to review the book.
- Write up and/or design some kind of advertisement for your book, whether print, video, radio, or press release.
Write a letter!
A. Choose a special person and write a letter to them using the biblical greeting style.
- Explain to them how and why they are important to you, what good you see in them and how it benefits those around them.
Let them know that you pray for them, be specific.
- Consider sending a copy to your friend and then also keep a copy with your prayer list and pray over them on a regular basis. Consider writing new letters to new people, perhaos once a week or per month.

B. Write a letter to someone you admire. It doesn’t have to be someone you have met, and they can be a superhero or someone from history, etc. Tell them why you admire them and how they have influenced your life. Share the gospel with them.
C. Write a letter to someone you have argued with and apologize for your part in the argument. Explain your reason, tell them where you went wrong and ask for forgiveness. Then explain how and why you have forgiven them (only if they have offended), incorporating the gospel in your explanation.
