Creative Prompts 1

vivatramp book blog creative prompts for creative writing photography

I'm always harping on about the benefits of working with creative prompts over here on Vivatramp, particularly within the context of creative writing, so I thought I'd finally get round to posting a selection of my very own random prompts for you to use at your leisure. 

These prompts can be used for whatever creative purpose you see fit. Write stories inspired by them! Create pieces of art! Snap photographs inspired by them! You could even use them to inspire blog posts! Use them in a literal sense or manipulate them slightly, it's really up to you. If you end up using any of these, I'd love to see your efforts so tag me in your instagrams, tweet me your links and leave me a heads up in the comments section below!

  2. Thank you for you this. I'm going to try some of these, I'm in a real writing mood at the moment.

    I find that people watching always inspires me to write - I look at people and wonder what their relationships are with the people they're with, why they're in that place, and things like that, and my brain runs away with ideas.

  3. What a greet post, going to use some of these. Thank you.

  4. These are really great! Thank you I've been in need of something to inspire me :)

  5. Not sure what I'm going to use these for but I can already sense my brain whirring. Thanks for these lovely x

  6. I really love small prompts like these, they are so much better than prompts that are sentences. These you can expand on in anyway you want and so the creativity is much more creative!!x


  7. I love short prompts like this that you can really interpret however you like, these will be great for me! Thank you <3
