Writing Prompt

Recently it was my birthday and in among the cards and pairs of socks I got this interesting little travel dice game unambiguously titled “Space Travel Dice”
The idea is simple, roll the dice, each with their own unique set of prompts, and create a story using the prompts.

Hey this fits right in with that thing that I do with the website. Thanks Mum!

The dice prompts are:

  • Friendly alien
  • Shooting star
  • Saturn
  • Space phone
  • Moon vehicles
  • Alien language
  • Constellation map
  • Space Station

Keep in mind that with so many prompts, you might what to think laterally to stand out for this one.


SciFi obviously.

  1. Harlo, dumb quesiton: do we have to incorporate all of these prompts into our stories? Or just one of them?

    1. All of them, but you can be creative and they don’t all need to play a major role

  2. Thanks 🙂 I’m going to chicken out and wait to be wowed by the short list instead *waiting…waiting…*
