Welcome to my new Monday feature, Video Writing Prompt! Every week I plan to bring you a new video as a springboard for a writing prompt. Whether I make it myself, or find an interesting news clip, or book trailer, or funny video from YouTube, there will be a video of some kind prompting you to stretch your imagination and writing chops. Have fun with it!
Here is the prompt:
The pirates have landed. They’ve taken something unexpected. What did they take?
Here are some additional questions to consider:
- What did they take?
- Why did they take it?
- What was so unexpected about what they took?
- Did you put up a fight?
- Were you with the pirates or against them?
- Did they land on your boat?
- Did they hide in that cave first?
- Why am I so serious in this video? 😎
