Writing Prompt: Heartbreak

Don’t you dare write about a teenage girl who’s boyfriend cheated on her because he didn’t know how to tell her it was over. But if you do, it better be so far from the stereotype that it makes me laugh out loud, cry or scream. Stereotypes make me want to hurl. 

Write an internal dialogue of someone who has just been taken away from something they love. I encourage that something to not be a person. It could be a family heirloom, a suitcase full of money, an injured athlete who can’t play in the big game. Be creative!

As always, ping back if you complete the post. I’d love to read it!Image

  1. This was super inspiring… so many people write about heartbreak and it’s become such a mold for stories and as a wannabe YA writer I should be wary of that mold. Thanks for this.
