|"Wedding Gift" by Julian Wylegly|
Heather Wright has some excellent writing prompts at her blog and in her book Writing Fiction: A Hands-On Guide for Teens, including using just a snippet of dialogue to suggest an entire scene or story.
Give this one a try:
Character 1: "I can't believe he gave that to her."
Character 2: "I can't believe she took it."
What do you think is going on here? Write for ten minutes, continuing the dialogue, or incorporating it into a scene that tells us more about who's speaking, who they're talking about, and what the mysterious "it" is!
