50 Wild and Crazy Romance Writing Prompts by Jules Dixon
Something I love to do is write from writing prompts. For me they are short little snippets of wonderful to get my brain working before I try to write in something more important. They’re the appetizer of the writing world for a writer’s brain instead of their stomach.
And occasionally I like to make up writing prompts…and sometimes those prompts turn a little wild and crazy…and romancey…and strange.
I thought today I’d share the ones I’ve concocted over the last year. These are purely just ideas for authors to take and run with. If anyone decides to use one, I’d love to hear where you went with but no credit need to be given. At the bottom I wrote a 200 word take on one of them!

Her Cat Didn’t Like Him
The fact stood, Miss Wiggles judged men.
I’d invited Jason back to my place after a work function at Applebee’s. I hated Applebee’s, but since I liked Jason, I didn’t complain.
He seemed to have his shit together. Accountant. Good teeth and nice breath. Hair that looked like he went to a salon and not his sister’s house for a buzz cut. He’d paid for drinks so he had a few dollars in his bank account or at least room on his credit card. And a body that rivaled Michelangelo’s David, so I wasn’t complaining there either.
But Miss Wiggles hissed and caterwauled her way around the room, never taking her big blue eyes off of him.
We started making out hot and heavy on my couch when he screamed out, but not in pleasure, “Your cat just bit me!”
“Are you okay?” I shooed the thin white fluff ball away, but she made her way onto the back of the sofa.
He rubbed the spot. “I think so. Where were we?”
And with that question, Miss Wiggles answered him by jumping onto Jason’s head and clawing at his perfectly styled hair. Clumps of brown hair flew like confetti on New Year’s Eve.
Within seconds he was out the door and I was staring at a cat that looked smugger than an IRS agent.
In the morning, I found his phone pressed haphazardly in between two cushions.
Six messages from six girls.
I’d been saved by a rescued alley cat.
Miss Wiggles was a good judge of character.
So there you have it. Writing prompt gone wild.
Hope you have a great Wednesday! Happpyyy Humping! ❤ Jules
