Messy house writing prompt

Any parent will understand the disaster that you call a home. Years ago, I had a client with what I thought was a great middle grade story about a kid whose bedroom had become so messy that critters started to move in and call his room home. Mice in a pile of clothes, an opossum living from the ceiling fan, racoons under the bed, etc. etc. etc.

So, today your writing prompt is to write about critters living and raising their family in the messiest part of your child’s bedroom.

A second writing prompt is coming home to find it spotless. You have been away, your children aren’t home, your partner is out of town, and your friends are more likely to mess your home than clean it. How in the world did your interior disaster become a viral Pinterest Post that Marie Kondo just shared?


I am a full-time freelance writer specializing in books, though I also write blogs, web-content, and handle several other types of projects. To see what I offer visit my rates page or contact me with specific queries and questions. I’m also available to help mentor you through your first book. I’d love to work with you, and if you know anyone else looking for a writer I offer a generous referral fee.

If you would like to leave a donation for people interested in writing a book about their life and challenges, but lack the budget, you can contribute here.
