Welcome, A-Z Blogging Challenge friends. This year, my theme is Prompt-a-day, with fun or thought-provoking writing prompts to use as a story start, warm up, or creativity stretching exercise.


A magical land causes anyone who enters to fall into a blissed-out stupor.

Discover how writing prompts can be a helpful tool, no matter where you are in your writing journey: 5 Reasons to Write with Prompts.

Love using writing prompts?

Check out my latest release, 1001 Evocative Prompts for Fiction Writers. It will stimulate your thinking wherever you are in your writing journey and get you writing today. It provides story starts and writing inspiration for a wide variety of genres by focusing on emotions, character development, and pivotal moments.

You can face a blank page with confidence when you use these prompts to warm up, beat writer’s block, develop and maintain a writing habit, change up your routine, start a new project, experiment in a new genre, deepen parts of an existing story, or overcome burnout.

Q4U: How might you spin this prompt in an unexpected direction? How about as science fiction or slipstream historical fiction?


  1. Hi Laurel ... bliss to me is just collapsing and reading a book without worries about what's next to do! Lots of thoughts ... and it's a pleasure just to think ... cheers Hilary

    1. That sounds lovely! Though if characters were in a situation where enemies were closing in, flopping in a sunny field to read at leisure might become something of a problem.
