    Writer's block can be frustrating. When some writers don't know what to write they turn to writing prompts, little stubs that can be used as a starting point for their own ideas. Since I haven't made a 40 item list in a while I decided to help all the frustrated writers out there by making a list of 40 writing prompts.

    WARNING: These are really awful writing prompts. They will not help you. Do not use them under any circumstances.

    Sample:

    Describe purple from the first person viewpoint of purple.
    Tell the story of an aardvark that is possessed by the devil.
    Tell the story of a six-inch ruler that is possessed by the devil.
    Tell the story of a single raspberry that is possessed by the devil.
