Mystery Writing Prompts: May 2017

Mystery Writing Prompts

Happy Birthday, Mom!

This week’s writing prompts are from a favorite genre of my mom’s: Mystery. You will likely notice some Lovecraftian themes in these since I am reading the Gods of HP Lovecraft. I’m only on the third short story, but it is well done if any of you are interested in the works of Lovecraft. Anyhoo, the Brix and Gregor draft is coming right along. I’ll get it finished one of these days.

I hope you all enjoyed the guest writer’s Keeper of the Guardians this week. If anyone would like to be featured in a future post, let us know!

  1. Thank you! Mystery IS my favorite. I wish I knew how to to build a story from a prompt but I’ll just enjoy yours :).

    1. I’m definitely about to start working on mysteries again. Planning a new case for Detective Pierson, a sci-fi thriller, and the oft delayed paranormal mystery that I swear will get written some day.
