Before I write out this week’s writing prompts for you, a quick Q:

Are you ready with your family summer reading? If you want a good story to read with children (in person or online, grandparents/aunties/etc!), that will lead on to chatting about your faith, do hop on over to, and choose something suitable. These books are brilliant conversation starters. Nothing quite like filling young minds with good things (while you’re waiting for your own story to be in print!).

And they are great research books for you, too. 🙂

Dernier Books

*Competition* If you buy The Treasure Hunt through the Dernier website, There’s also a competition to win a whole treasure chest of 18 fabulous books! More info here. I know this sounds a bit like an advert, but I wouldn’t want you or your loved ones to miss out. 🙂 All these books really are fun stories, that are changing lives.

The Treasure Hunt

Right, on to this week’s 7 writing prompts for you, that you can do alone, or with the whole family. (Do send in photos of your children’s work, whether they write themselves, or perhaps they’d like to illustrate your stories?)

Don’t forget, this isn’t an exam – it’s just for fun. 🙂 You can write as much or as little as you like, do just one or do them all, do them all in a big binge, or pick one for every day of the week.

So here they are:

  1. You’re holding something amazing. It starts to turn over…
  2. You are in class, but in your imagination you are somewhere else…
  3. What is in that jug (pitcher)?
  4. You have to keep your mum safe, but it’s not going to be easy…
  5. You have a friend who has a secret…
  6. The weather is against you, and you’re on a mountain
  7. You wake up in a strange place.

Feel free to pick one, or do all seven, and spend as much or as little time doing them as you wish.

Enjoy! And I’ll be back next week with more fun writing prompts. 🙂

Every blessing,


P.S. Don’t miss out on the competition!More info here.
