Ideas for silly stories

Choose one of these writing prompts and try writing a SILLY story!

  • Write a story about what would happen if every round object on Earth was suddenly a cabbage.
  • Write a story about two characters who are opposites. They could be opposite in size (one big, one small) or opposite in personality (one grumpy, one cheery) or opposite in what they want (one wants to sleep, one wants to dance). What happens when these characters meet? Do they become friends? Or enemies?

  • Write a story about an everyday object or animal (for example, a door, a carrot, a puppy, etc) that is secretly evil.

  • Write a story about a pigeon and a kid who swap bodies.

  • Write a story about an everyday activity you do all the time – for example, brushing your teeth, visiting the supermarket, riding your bike, etc. Then make the story weird by changing one small detail. For example, your toothbrush might be a banana. Or the supermarket might only sell gorillas. Or the tyres of your bike might actually be snakes.


Buy a Real Pigeons book

Real Pigeons books can be bought where all good books are sold.

While it’s a bit tricky to get to the shops at the moment, we recommend checking if your local bookshop is doing delivery, or look at any of the fabulous Australian retailers who sell books online. This week we’ve partnered with Booktopia!
