Writing Prompts

What is a Techno Thriller
The techno thriller genre contains action-oriented books that explore in great detail the use of military technology to solve complex domestic and foreign threats within in a suspenseful plot. If you want to write in this genre, remember that realism and technical accuracy are a must.

Boy with Bubbles Writing Prompt
Here is a photo writing prompt to get your creative juices flowing. A little boy stands in a grassy area, blowing soap bubbles with a wand. Does he remind you of yourself? What mood does the photograph convey to you?

Unforgiven as a New Western
Looking at movies might help clarify the difference between a Classic Western and a New Western. Open Range, which expresses heroism and optimism, is a Classic Western. Unforgiven, which exudes cynicism and pessimism, is a New Western. This article discusses Unforgiven with plot spoilers.

Bald Guy Writing Prompt
Here is an unusual picture writing prompt that has an air of mystery about it. The man has his back to us and not much can be inferred from his appearance. He is almost claustrophobically hemmed in by his surroundings, which seem to be mere texture in the background.

Open Range is a Classic Western Film
Still wondering about the difference between the Classic Western fiction genre and the New Western fiction genre? Let me illustrate with movies. Classic Western Open Range is filled with optimism and heroism. New Western Unforgiven exudes cynicism and despair. This article contains plot spoilers.

Red Ball in Window Writing Prompt
Here is another example of how a landscape photo can be just as effective as a people photo in suggesting a story. Feast your eyes on this bizarre image. What is going on in that upper window? What will happen to the people in the apartment below? You be the judge.

rec prodBird by Bird by Anne Lamott
A funny, unpretentious, sympathetic look at the writing life. The section on allowing yourself to write a crappy rough draft (so you can get it done in the first place) is worth the price of the book alone.
rec prodHow to Write Descriptions of Eyes and Faces
by Val Kovalin, your BellaOnline editor for the Fiction Writing site. Learn to describe the appearance of the eyes, actions involving the eyes, and how to describe eyelids, eyebrows, and eyelashes. More than 2,000 words explaining 82 color names to assign to eyes. Facial shapes, forehead, ears, cheekbones, nose, lips, chin, and facial hair. Learn how the face shows different emotions, and more!
rec prodThe Killer Angels by Michael Shaara
Best historical novel ever, and I donīt even like most historical novels. Epic and unforgettably intense! Among other things, reading this will teach you how to hook your readers through writing strong character emotion.
