I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Writing Prompts - The What-if Game

We all know this one.

What if I don’t get what I want? What if I do?
What if I couldn’t smell?
What if I went on a trip?
What if I knew someone who died in an act of terrorism?
What if there was no such thing as chocolate?
What if tomorrow morning the sky was bright green?
What if it started to snow in the middle of summer?
What if you met someone who had never owned a pair of shoes?
What if Ciderella's glass slippers had been shattered?

What if, what if, what if….is an endless series of questions you can ask about yourself, about the world around you, or about characters in a story.


  1. Hello Bish! Came here by way of Anne's blog (Piedmont Writer). :)

    These are great prompts. I especially like the last one, gives a whole new inight on the way the fairy tale could have been told!

  2. I love playing "what if"! And I agree with Jayne, the last one is my favorite. Sounds like a good story there...
