36 Wednesday Writing Prompts

Every Wednesday, I wake up and make my bed. Picking out my outfit is never a challenge—I know what to wear on any day. Downstairs, my aunt makes breakfast since my mom works early on Wednesdays…

Every day of the week brings something new, but a lot of people feel that Wednesday is the best day of the week. It’s halfway to Friday and whatever the weekend has in store!

Using This Guide

We’ve put together a list of writing prompts to really get you to think about Wednesdays and what makes them unique.

Use a few or use them all—as long as you’re writing, that’s all that matters.

If you need help picking a prompt, try one of these fun ideas:

  • Count the pairs of colored socks in your drawer. Use that number to pick your prompt.
  • Scroll down the list with your eyes closed and use whichever prompt your cursor lands on.
  • Use the last two digits of your phone number and pick your prompt.
