My thoughts on writing tips found online and in published works (with some random thoughts thrown into the mix).

Zombie Apocalypse?

Today is the start of the zombie revolution. For years, they have hid from the eyes of humans, afraid of the persecution they see on television and in movies. They have lived in constant fear of being exposed and killed on the spot. But now, from this moment, they refuse to submit to terror anymore. They are going to rise up against the oppressive humans and claim their place in the world. They will show everyone that they are more than just mindless, man-eating infections. They will prove that they can be functioning members of society. Starting today, they will change the status quo forever.

This is an example of a good writing prompt. Take a commonplace situation, one that everyone usually accepts without question, and turn it on its head. This can make any mundane topic into something new and interesting. Adopt a new perspective and help your reader see the world from a different viewpoint. What other topics can you think of that could use a flip?

P.S. This is my first time doing any creative writing on my blog. I know it is short, but what do you think? If it is any good, I will try to write more in the future to share.
