Every Wednesday our creative writing prompt challenges you to pick up your pen and indulge your author self! 

Today’s writing prompt is about what scares you.  A few weeks ago we posted some mystery stories on our blog that were written by TMWFI 3rd grade students in North Virginia.  The students embraced their fears and wrote about strange noises in the night, ghosts and killer shark attacks.  Did you know that writing about something that really scares you is a great way to get over your fear?

Write a mystery story about something that scares you.  If you need ideas or inspiration check out our blog post from March 10th.  Notice how our mystery writers took their time building up the suspense and using lots of descriptions for the things they could see, hear and feel.

Share with us! Post your story in the comments section of our blog.
