    Prompt 1: The year is 1933 and after fighting for years for your position on an exploration team, you finally set off from New York to explore the deserts of Africa. Though you were only enlisted as an artists you aim to discover something of worth and make a name for yourself, but you end up finding something more than you could ever imagine.

    Pictures/Playlist

    Prompt 2: After finally graduating high school, you and your friends finally take that short holiday you deserve. You spend your time reconnecting and reminiscing on your high school years at a beach, knowing that you will all disappear to different universities all over the country. Drinks are spilled, memories are shared and in those passing hours you realise so much about your life and what makes you happy.

    Pictures/Playlist

    Prompt 3: Every midnight you have the same dream; you are lost in a dark forest and no matter how far you run, you can never seem to find the end. One night the dream changes and suddenly there is a figure at the edge of your vision who calls to you but you can never quite hear what they are saying. After months of this same dream, one day you notice someone who resembles the figure in your dream, and for some reason they recognise you.

    Pictures/Playlist

    Prompt 4: From a young age the voice in your head always seemed louder than others. You'd always been told these voices were your thoughts, that it was nothing unusual but after hitting your head one day you suddenly realised what these voices were. They were the voices of the dead, calling out for you, and they need you.

    Pictures/Playlist

    Prompt 5: You work the closing shit in a diner in a 1960's themed diner at the edge of town. One night as you sweep the floor before leaving, someone opens the door. You turn to tell them that you're closed but you recognise the person who walks in. It's your friend who went missing ten years ago, and even though it's been years you could never forget their face.

    Pictures/Playlist

    Prompt 6: For all your life you were insignificant. You worked as a maid at a local bar but one night when walking home someone grabs you. When you wake you're in an open coffin surrounded by ruins, the pitch black night and people wearing dark cloaks. They speak words to you and suddenly you realise you are very much significant and your whole world is about to change.

    Pictures/Playlist

    Prompt 7: You were born into a family of wealth and royalty and for hundreds of years your family ruled the lands peacefully. An uprising is brewing though, and one night when wandering your castle grounds you overhear the servants discussing the plot to overthrow your family. They talk of the wrong your family has done and secrets you never knew are being revealed. Suddenly it is clear that your family is not who you think they are and you are left with a question; abandon them and join the resistance, or stick by them and help fight this resistance.

    Pictures/Playlist

    Prompt 8: You work a nine to five you hate and years have passed with you doing the same job day after day. One day you receive a terrifying phone call that your older brother has killed himself. Your whole life is thrown into question. Why did he do this? Why didn't you see the signs? Why didn't he talk to you? Your life is spun on it's head and you know that you have to turn your life around.

    Pictures/Playlist

    Prompt 9: You always admired her from afar; her confidence, her arrogance, her wealthy family, her urge to live, it was intoxicating to you. After graduating you no longer see her, until one day when you're walking to work you discover her sat on a park bench, cigarette hung from her lips and a dead look on her face. She's the opposite of what she once was. She glances up and notices you, smiling softly she calls out for you and you find your feet guiding you to her.

    Pictures/Playlist

    Prompt 10: A new boy moves in next door and from your bedroom window you wistfully stare at him going about his life. One day he knocks on the door with an armful of flowers. He tells you that you're going on a date and it's going to be the best night of your life. Though you've never talked and as far as you were aware he didn't know you excited, but against your better judgements, you agree.

    I also assume that even thought these prompts all imply being written from first person, we can write any POV?

    You can write in any POV! I just thought it would be better to write the prompts that way :)
