Story Writing Prompt: Getting Your Characters Out of Their Comfort Zone


Following on from this weekend’s World Cup football drama, which took everyone out of their comfort zones, I’m sharing some story writing prompts here from the blog – different ways to get your story characters out of their comfort zones… without having to use a footballer as your protagonist!

If you’re a fiction writer and ever feeling stuck for ideas, I’ve pulled together a diverse list of options here for people to refer to.

And although these monthly writing prompts are drawn from a website devoted to the novella-in-flash, I invite readers here to harness these prompts flexibly for all kinds of writing – not just fiction, but also poetry or creative non-fiction inspired by your own personal experiences.
