Writing Prompt: The Story Starter: Sorry for Your Loss

By Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy

This week’s prompt is a story starter, so take the element provided and turn it into a story of any length you choose. If you’re stuck on size, I suggest aiming for 1000-2000 words.

Write about the loss of something dear.


It can be a person, animal, item--even a personal belief or truth someone cared about. Dig deep and use your own personal experience with loss to tap into the same emotions, even if your story is pure fiction. 

Write whatever this triggers, and use these details however you wish. Put them together, use them separately, make one a detail in a scene, whatever inspires you—run with it.
