You want to learn how to write great science fiction?
It all starts with the idea.
And here are 101 ideas to start you writing a truly amazing sci-fi story.
Some of these writing prompts are ideas for characters; others present possible scenarios and snippets of dialogue. Each one of them has a sci-fi tale waiting to form, some more than one.
These just aren’t any old ideas. What makes these sci-fi prompts different?
Science fiction is, for many reasons, the most exciting of all genres.
It’s so much more than spaceships and evil robots (though they’re cool too). Science fiction is the far reaches of possibility. It’s what people might be capable of. It’s what the world might face under certain conditions. Science fiction is the greatest game of “what if?” a writer has to play with.
So much of sci-fi written from the past has come to be in our present reality, even if that’s only in a thematic or metaphorical sense. The genre is one of the greatest tools we have to examine the current state of the human condition and offer predictions, sometimes warnings, for the future. And yes, sometimes sci-fi is also just great fun!
Every one of these writing prompts has been developed from this deep understanding of the true nature of science fiction.
Every one of these sci-fi writing prompts will help you craft a fine story. Whether you’re writing short stories, screenplays, novels or an epic book series.
