Here is a set of fall writing prompts from one of my new books on writing prompts for seasons. The sounds, smells and sights of fall are some of my favorite of the year (it helps that I'm an October baby). There's nothing like stomping through a pile of leaves or sipping some warm apple cider. Use these prompts however you see fit, no matter what your age, to get a little autumn creativity boost.
Fall Writing Prompts
291. What kinds of food would go into a perfect fall meal? What kind of foods wouldn't make the cut and why? How do meals in the fall differ from meals for other seasons? Why?
292. You have been asked to make a fall decoration for the outside of your house. What do you make and why? What materials will you need to use? What will your family members think of your efforts and why?
293. What is your happiest memory that happened during the fall? Why was it so great? Do you think that you'll remember it for the rest of your life? Why or why not?
294. Imagine that dressing up in a costume wasn't just a Halloween tradition but an entire fall season tradition and that every day you needed a different costume. What are five of the costumes you'd pick and why would you pick them? How hard would it be to come up with so many different disguises? Why?
295. Create a conversation between two jack-o’-lanterns on the front stoop of adjacent houses. What would they think about each other and the fall season in general? Why?
296. While playing in a giant leaf pile, you're shocked to find that the leaves have come alive and started singing to you. What songs would this red-, yellow-, and orange-colored chorus sing and why? If they took requests, what songs would you ask them to sing and why?
297. Imagine that during the fall season, leaves weren't the only things to fall. The whole three months would consist of people and things falling over all the time. How would this make life a little more difficult? What would your family do to prepare for the dangerous fall season and why?
298. Create a made-up story using the following words: leaves, dance, hat, and pumpkin.
299. Imagine that you lived inside a cartoon world. How would the falling of the leaves, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the other parts of the season be different as a cartoon and why?
300. In a lot of poems, fall is depicted as a sort of depressing and sad time. Would you agree? Why or why not? What could these sad poets do to have more fun during the fall season?
