As the weather gets chillier, it’s only natural to look for ways to stay warm and toasty. Outside of taking the space heater out of storage and bundling up in any blanket you can find, another source of heat can be found in the kitchen. Food has a way of stirring up a variety of emotions from happiness to comfort to wistful nostalgia. From the sizzle of a frying pan to the delicate aroma of a freshly baked pie, the world of food offers an endless buffet of inspiration for writers of all tastes and backgrounds. With that in mind, it’s time to indulge your creativity with a set of writing prompts for the month of November.
Food is the prompt theme of the month, and rightfully so. We’re marching headfirst into the season of Friendsgiving and other gatherings that come with their own individual spread of meals and complementary sets of complex atmospheres. For the next 30 days, we invite you to join us as we dive into the rich and flavorful universe of cuisines, restaurants, recipes, and more. As always, feel free to interpret these writing prompts however you’re inspired to do so. The most important ingredient is fun, after all. Happy creating!
