Writing can be hard. Every writer has experienced the frustration that comes with being uninspired or simply not finding the right way to express an idea. It is difficult to force creativity when you are not in a creative mindset.

Inspiration can come and go and lack of inspiration can often lead to writer’s block. This is where prompt pictures come in handy. Prompts are a great way to not only ignite your creativity but also help you write unexpected gems.

Prompts can come in many forms. They can be composed of a simple sentence, a word, an emotion, a description, or a picture.

Prompt pictures can be particularly effective because pictures naturally incite our creativity. There are so many stories and emotions that can stem from one picture.

In this article, I have collected 15 picture prompts for fantasy writers that I hope will help you create your next story. Although I have written prompt ideas and given each picture a title, feel free to dismiss them and create a story solely based on these pictures.

Don’t forget to comment down below which pictures were your favorite!
