If only s/he had never found that platypus in his/her locker.

Weekly Writing Helper: Books

Weekly Writing Helpers are here to help you when you get stuck or are fresh out of ideas. I’d love to read what you come up with! If you post your story, you can link back to this post or tag your post with Weekly Writing Helper. 🙂

Planning Stages Idea:

Make the books on your character’s bookshelf start mysteriously disappearing one by one. And he’d better find out why they’re disappearing before they all disappear, or else…

Plot Twist Idea:

Your character finds a book written in a mysterious language that somehow will affect the outcome of his story.

Writer’s Block Idea:

Read! It’s the best way to conquer writer’s block.
