Ships in the middle of the ocean, waves crashing all around

Writing prompts are meant to give you ideas and help you stir up those stories you didn’t even know you had within you. I like simple ones, so I give a few suggestions, maybe with a bit of description of the characters, personalities, or plot. But it is completely up to you to create the story that surrounds these prompts. The idea is to have fun and discover your storyteller.

This writing prompt gives a bit of definition, but plenty of room for creating many unique stories.

Your characters:

  • A woman in her eighties, don’t let age fool you!
  • A man in his late thirties, he is somewhat insecure, but still waters run deep.
  • A teen, he/or she is very smart. Almost too smart.

Your context: A shipwreck.
