Before I get into this one I want to remind you that each prompt can be used to write a stand alone piece, a collection of pieces, or serve as parts that come together to equal a novella or novel.
So now let’s focus on setting. Where are you in this story you want to tell? Even a poem tells a story so don’t feel limited if that is the format you are writing in. Take sometime to describe the setting you have in your mind. Try your best not to simply tell. Show it. Showing it allows the readers imagination to get a jump start.
Write in a form you typically do not write in. Step out of your comfort zone. If you write long epic poems, pen your thoughts in a haiku. If you write fiction, write a short memoir piece. If you write non-fiction, exercise your imagination in a short story.
Need a topic: pigs flying
(This topic in honor of the fact that I may actually finish a novella during nanowrimo!)
