Wendy Jayne Scott, my author friend from New Zealand, offers writing prompts to engage young people in storytelling by firing up their imaginations (ages 6-up)


Here are 3 examples from her book of 12 prompts:

  1. Itโ€™s Christmas Eve, and youโ€™re supposed to be tucked up in bed, but you sneak downstairs to check if Santa has stopped by. The stockings are still empty. You hear a noise, so you crouch behind the sofa and hide. Who comes in and what happens?



  1. This Christmas decoration contains one magic wish. What do you wish for?



  1. Close your eyes and imagine all the special Christmas smells wafting from the kitchen. Describe how Christmas smells and tastes.
