    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.


    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.
