    Default The Weekly Prompt Thread

    Stuck on how to begin that epic story, or just want to practice writing something? This is the place for you.

    Each Monday, I'll post a prompt--it could be a first line of a story, a what-if question, a quote, or anything in between. (but it will usually have something to do with Pokemon) What you do with that prompt is up to you--be creative and write as much or as little as you want within forum guidelines.

    Of course, you are also welcome to submit prompt ideas--but I (or another Workshop mod) need to have them by Friday (so it can be posted the following Monday)

    You do not have to write on that week's prompt if you don't want to--every prompt will be archived and can be used at anytime

    I hope that this will provide new writers with inspiration and allow veterans a chance to sharpen their skills.

    Happy writing!

    It may be fitting and may draw more participation from the community if you offer to document the best input for the week's prompt.

    Maybe the weekend before a new prompt goes up, I could post the best of the week for all to read.

    Prompt ideas:

    "Life of Dr. Oak after giving away all of his Pokémon."
    "How did Whitney's Miltank become so strong?"
    "What if Volkner refused to battle the player?"
    "So Amphy died... Now what?"
    "John (my default name for unnamed characters) just started his journey with a Mudkip, but now he changed his mind and doesn't want to take on the League."
    "Kyogre flooded the world."
    "Cynthia was weird as a kid... Very weird..."
    "So you want to be a master of Pokémon?"

    And are we doing the "start and end are detailed" thing? Just a suggestion, shouldn't this thread be mixed with the other one? Since we aren't starting the story yet? Or did I just do something wrong?

    These are two seprate things to do--Ongoing Story is for fun, this is to help writers practice.

    I may do the first story with just the start written out, then the next with the start and end written out to see which goes over better

    Thank you for the ideas--just remember to send them in no later than the Friday before if you want them considered for that Monday

    Since I already had a prompt planned for this Monday, these are going in the idea bank.

    Oooh good one! Makes you think...

    How about in PokeSpe, if Ivysaur didn't evolve and the three trainers were killed! What would've happened afterwards?

    Okay, here's your first prompt:


    Ever wonder would classic folk tales and fairy tales would look like in the Pokeworld? Find a fairy tale or folk tale and Pokemonize it!

    This folk legend is probably not known anywhere out of my country, since it is... from my country.

    So... kind of like Gilgamesh, then?
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Your prompt this week:

    "So you want to be a master of Pokémon?"

    If you could give a new trainer advice for their journey, what would you tell them?
