Writing Prompts

Warm-up Wednesday: Two minutes

stopwatch writing prompt




Do each writing prompt in two minutes. You can do them again later, giving yourself more time, but try the short versions first. Set a timer that forces you to move from one to the next.

• Write about breakfast.
• Depict your best friend as a 2-year-old.
• Write about a new pair of shoes.
• Describe a really bad hair day.
• Write about the shapes of clouds.
