July Writing Prompts

Start Camp Nanowrimo off with these writing prompts to get the creative juices flowing. Need inspiration for your Camp Nanowrimo goal? These four writing prompts will help.

On the first Monday of every month, I create a few writing prompts to help you get writing! You’ll see them here each month and on Instagram @thelexiconwritingblog every Monday.


Happy July! And Happy Birthday to the USA too! There are four Monday’s in July which means…four writing prompts! July is also CampNanowrimo so if you need a story idea to get you going, look no further.


Here we go!

  1. An alien lands somewhere in the USA on Independence Day. What is its experience?
  2. Write about a summer memory as if the exact opposite events happened.
  3. Write a fiction piece about on of your heroes. Explain why they are great by writing a story about them.
  4. Write a story including the words “summer vacation”, “stormy”, and “wish”.


Good luck to everyone participating in CampNanowrimo this month! I’ll be working on a few hours of editing for my WIP.
