Writing short stories is fun in its own right, but it can also be an antidote to writer’s block if you are writing a longer story or novel. Sometimes taking a break from your storyline can rejuvenate your creativity. It also gives you the chance to explore settings, characters, or plotlines without having to commit to them.
Here are some short story ideas to get you going!
A night in the woods
Original character’s backstory
A children’s story
An elephant statue
The money tree
An empty whiskey bottle
As weird as you can possibly think of
Hidden in plain sight
Historical fiction/ pivotal point in human history
