Sit down and write for 10 or 20 minutes straight for a prompt of your choosing. You can even aim to write a short paragraph for all of these fantasy prompts. Pace yourself by doing one prompt a day. If you are struggling to write more about a prompt, then you can use the 5 W’s and 1 H technique (What, why, where, when, who and how). Ask yourself, when did this event happen or why did it happen? For example for prompt 1, you see a large opening in the tree. Think about who was present at the time you saw this, what day was it and how did you feel in this exact moment? Hopefully, the  5 W’s and 1 H technique will help you to expand your story and even motivate you to finish your story!

And if you need more inspiration, take a look at this awesome fantasy book title generator .

Need more inspiration for your fantasy story? Here are a couple of resources that we recommend. The first resource we recommend is an amazing book called, Writing Fantasy & Science Fiction: How To Create Out-Of-This-World Novels (Amazon Affiliate link). This book covers everything from generating ideas to writing detailed descriptions of fantasy worlds (and creatures). Its aimed towards more mature writers, but younger skilled writers may also find the tips useful.

Another great read for budding fantasy story writers is the Fantasy Fiction Formula book (Amazon Affiliate link). This book offers practical tips and techniques from writing fantasy stories from beginning to end. Again this book is geared towards the more mature or experienced writer.

Finally, we recommend, A Fantasy Writers’ Handbook: The Complete Guide To Writing Fantasy (Amazon Affiliate link). This book is great for both beginners and more novice writers. It provides brilliant advice in a range of areas, such as character development , world-building, plot development and editing and publishing your book.

Help guide your students through the fantasy writing process with this fantasy writing unit of study.

fantasy story writing for grade 4

This is another free writing unit of study from The Curriculum Corner!

Add this fantasy writing unit of study to your writing studies during the school year.

So many students have a great imagination.  They are excited to attempt fantasy pieces of writing. What we find they often lack is a problem and a solution.

We have created this unit of study to help your students write a complete fantasy story. These free writing lessons are geared towards second and third grade students.

For this writing unit, we do not have children begin writing fantasy stories right away.  We first build a good foundation.

This unit is newly updated to include additional resources. Also, you will not find a PDF of the lessons as described in this post. This is great for those teachers who like to print out a copy for future years.

Help guide your students through the fantasy writing process with this fantasy writing unit of study.

How should I begin my unit of study?

As always we begin our writing unit of study with a day or two of noticings..

We pull together our favorite fantasy books in the classroom.  We introduce the idea of a fantasy book by reading aloud an example. 

One of our favorites is a book from The Magic Treehouse series.  Students enjoy these and they contain many elements of a fantasy.  As we read aloud, we bring up the idea of reality versus fantasy.

Within the download we have created you will find a Mentor Texts chart. Record the books you use as mentor texts for this unit on this page. Along with the title, write down the location of the book. This will make it easier to find the books you used next year!

What are noticings?

To begin noticings, we partner up students and give them each a book or two that is a good example of a fantasy book.  We hand students a few post it notes and give them a chance to search for features of a fantasy text. 

Remember, this is before we have created an anchor chart so some answers may be true and some may not be.  This is ok…both will give you more to discuss when you pull back together as a class. 

As students complete their noticings, make sure you filter around to talk with the kids about what they are noticing.  This activity may last 20 minutes or it may take an hour – it depends on your students.  When you feel like most groups are finished, pull back together as a class.

We have included a noticings page you may use if you would like your students to record their observations.

FREEBIE Fantasy Writing Unit of Study from The Curriculum Corner

Anchor Charts  

When you pull back together, create an anchor chart that includes the aspects of a fantasy story that you have found.  We have created printable and colorful samples you might choose to use.  We have also created a reality anchor chart if your students need a visual to help them compare.

There is a T-chart students can use to record the differences they find between fantasy and reality.

Within the resources, you will find graphic organizers designed for you to give to students along with a fantasy and a reality book.  

Students look for the differences and fill out the graphic organizer in order to show their understanding.

Fantasy and Reality Sort For an easy literacy center, you will find a card sort for students to sort the events between fantasy and reality.

There is also a blank page so that students can create their own events as an extension. Simply print and laminate the blank page and students can use a vis-a-vis marker.

Introducing Fantasy Characters 

You can choose any favorite book with characters that are not real for this mini-lesson. 

One of our favorites is Click Clack Moo.  We like it because it is a familiar text with many examples of what characters can do that are not real. 

After reading aloud the story, talk about what makes the characters fantasy characters. Responses should refer to the human-like actions of the animals.

Introducing Fantasy Settings 

Again, this lesson can be completed with any fantasy book with a good example of an imaginary world. 

After reading the book, discuss the fantasy setting.  Have students share how they know the setting is imaginary.

FREE Fantasy Writing Unit of Study from The Curriculum Corner | Writing Workshop

Problem & Solution

This is often the most difficult part for students to include in their fantasy writing. 

Students tend to have a problem, but forget to include a solution. 

Or, the story created is a list of events without a problem to solve. 

For this reason, this is a good topic to focus on for more than one day. 

After a read aloud, we like to have students complete a story map or a simple graphic organizer like this one:  Problem & Solution.  

We like to follow the whole group lesson up with an independent practice the following day.

Starting a Story

You will find pages with ten cards on each. One has labels for characters and the other for settings. These can be printed on card stock and laminated for future use. There is also an additional blank page.

Have students choose one of each card. You might place them in a basket and have students pick without looking. Or, you can allow children to choose the cards that interest them the most.

Children will then take their two cards and complete the Starting a Story page.

These pages can be completed in small groups or as a literacy center activity.

Have students save their pages in their writing folders. These can then be used as story starters later on.

Planning Your Writing

Model for students how to create a fantasy planner for their books. 

Use one of our Fantasy Writing Planners and have children plan their own stories. 

Remind students that it is ok to use a familiar character or setting from a favorite book. Their job is to create a new story using that character or setting.

Create a Magical World This graphic organizer can be used at any point in this unit to get your students thinking about their setting.

Fantastic Words This simple anchor chart of words might be used as a word wall or simply a tool to get your students thinking about possibilities.

Includes two graphic organizers for students who want to make a list of words they will use in their writing.

Working on Capitalization

In order to help students become better writers, we like to include a grammar focus in each unit.  

We have included an anchor chart and checklists for students to use when checking for correct capitalization.

Of course, it is always best to first talk about and practice this skill in a mini-lesson. Then review as needed.

If there are other grammar skills you find students need practice with, review in small groups or with a whole class mini-lesson if needed.


Every publishing should end with a celebration to recognize your students’ writing growth!  We have included colorful certificates and dedication bookplates for books.

You can download this free writing unit here:

Writing A Fantasy Story – Fantasy World Building

Writing A Fantasy Story - Fantasy World Building_featured image

What if you had the power to create your own world ? What would your heroes look like, and what would their names be? In this article we’ll guide you through some of the basics of writing a fantasy story.

Please enable JavaScript

Table of Contents

How to Write a Fantasy Story

A fantasy story is a story that features magical or supernatural elements as a plot device. Some of the most successful books, movies, and television shows rely on fantasy as a primary plot device.

Arabian Nights tales – These stories come from a collection of folk tales from Arabic nations.

Greek mythology – In many ways, Greek mythology is one of the earliest forms of fantasy.

Today, new fantasy books are published each year, and many have become part of popular culture . Some of the most famous fantasy books include “The Hobbit,” “The Lord of the Rings,” and “Harry Potter.”

What Makes A Good Fantasy Story?

Many of them are written in third person , past tense. They also often include basic life issues that readers can understand.

How to begin a fantasy novel – What is a good opening sentence for a fantasy story?’

“There was a forest in the middle of the city.”

That’s a great start! Immediately the reader is wondering what is up.

This is achieved by not letting the reader know enough to feel they are lost, but also not giving them too much information.

What are some common settings for fantasy stories?

Swords and sorcery – This is the most common setting for fantasy stories, and it’s perhaps the oldest type of fantasy story.

Fairy tales – A more fantastical take on fairy tales, these stories are usually set in imaginary worlds that mirror our own. Fairies, elves, and trolls are often featured in these types of stories.

Fantasy stories that play off of old fairy tales tend to have a lot of humor, because some of the most popular fairy tale characters become comic relief characters, or even villains.

Where does the word “fantasy” come from?

What are the different kinds of magic in fantasy books and movies.

This is the most common type of magic in fantasy stories, and while many people are familiar with it, most do not know exactly what it means.

Sorcery – Sorcery is actually a type of black magic that involves forcing someone to do something against their will. This is also known as spell magic, and it is often used in fantasy films and stories to make characters do things they do not want to do.

Black magic – Black magic is an evil type of magic that is used to do bad things to others. This type of magic can be used for selfish or evil purposes and can also do harm to characters.

It is also sometimes connected with witchcraft. Witches and sorcerers are often portrayed as black haired females in fantasy stories, and this is a common misconception that people have about these characters.

How do I write my own magic spells in a book or movie? (How to Add Magic to Your Story)

Normality/Ritual : In real life, magic often comes from being able to do something that isn’t normal. The invention or discovery of new technology is an example. But magic can also come from ritual or performance.

By performing a certain set of movements, certain words, or chanting a certain spell one can confidently say that they ARE able to do something that’s not supposed to be possible.

Incantations play a big role in magic in fantasy stories because they are used to cast spells. For instance, in the Harry Potter books , the incantation for the person to open a locked door is “Alohamora”.

When to Use Magic In Your Fantasy Story

Magical abilities are usually handed out to the protagonist for no good reason. The character is a particular hero type who is already special, and they get magical powers to make them even better than they already were.

Writing a fantasy novel world building – When to include fantasy creatures

Examples of the helpful, friendly kind: Good fairies and elves populate fantasy stories more than any other type of creatures.

Like magic, they should be used sparingly and blend in with the plot. They shouldn’t be an excuse for a series of un-interruptable action sequences. The action and adventure has to be natural and organic to the story or it will become unbelievable and silly.

How to write a good fantasy novel – How Do I Create a Unique World?

Creating a fictional fantasy story requires a lot of imagination, which is why fantasy writers often have a wild imagination and are good daydreamers.

What Should My Characters Be Like?

The reader must love the hero and absolutely loathe the villain. There must be a goal for the hero to complete and something for them to fight for.

How Can I Lead Them On A Journey?

Their journey must lead them to a greater understanding of themselves and the world around them.

What Role Should Dialogue Play In My Story?

Many authors have created a completely new language or way of speaking that leads the story.

How Can I Bring My Hero/Heroine To Life?

The reader wants to relate to the hero. They ARE the hero while they are reading the book. They are placing themselves in the same situation and feeling what the hero is feeling. This is how the reader gets emotionally involved with the story.

What Kind of Trouble Should I Throw At Her?

Everything you can, the more severe the better. You want to build up the suspense and keep your readers on the edge of their seats, but you still want your hero to come out on top in the end. Keep them in trouble and make them earn their happy ending.

What Are The Most Important Tips For Fantasy World Building?

How long does it take to write a fantasy novel.

For some reason, fantasy novels tend to be longer than other types of stories. A lot of the reasoning behind this may be that fantasy stories focus more on the setting than other kinds.

Fantasy novels can vary in length from a few hundred pages to close to a thousand. As long as it is well-written and moves the story forward, then it doesn’t really matter how long it is.

Establishing Your Setting

"Remember that "fantasy" is as big or as small as you want it to be," adds creative writer, Julia Martins. "You could create a secret magical society within our regular world (like JK Rowling did in Harry Potter) or you could create a whole complicated world of countries, cultures, and magic (like George RR Martin did in Game of Thrones). Either way, what makes fantasy "credible" is that you give your story the detail and care it needs to shine!"

Image titled Write a Credible Fantasy Story Step 2

Struggling to come up with a map? Julia Martins, creative writer, tells us: "If you're struggling to draw a map, try taking a handful of uncooked macaroni pasta and tossing it onto a table. Trace around the pasta and you have a brand new coastline to use for your map!"

Technology impacts the entire world you're building. Julia Martins, creative writer, tells us: "Fantasy stories aren't restricted to worlds with no technology. However, once you've decided what level of technology your world has, spend some time thinking about how that impacts the rest of the world. For instance, if your world doesn't have cars or trains, transportation is going to be much harder!"

Making the Rules

Image titled Write a Credible Fantasy Story Step 5

Write more than you think you need. Julia Martins, creative writer, advises: "It's ok if you come up with conventions and details that don't make it into the final draft of your story. Simply writing with the knowledge that those details are there will make your world feel more developed."

About This Article

Grant Faulkner, MA

To write a credible fantasy story, try to be as descriptive as possible when you're writing about the setting of your story so it feels like a real world to your readers. For example, you can talk about what the plants and animals in your fantasy world look like. You should also come up with consistent rules for how everything works in your fantasy world, like magic powers, so your story is more believable. For example, can anyone in your story have magic powers, or do they have to be born with them? For tips on how to come up with believable fantasy characters, scroll down! Did this summary help you?

🏆 Winning stories

“ of harpers and heroes ” by laurel hanson.

A smattering of applause dappled the last notes of his song. He let it die out in the darkening tavern before rising, joints stiff from the long performance.“Play the one about the Hero of Faron,” a voice slurred from a dim recess.“Aye, that’s a good ‘un,” Harrow acknowledged agreeably, hoping to collect his dinner without a confrontation with yet another inebriated villager. Slinging his guitar over his shoulder, he called out, “mayhap tomorrow night.”The drunk set up a complaint cut ...

“ I Knew Better ” by Kylah Adams

As a child, I would hide in the coat closet, taking advantage of the door that wouldn’t close, as I watched my mother command the items around the house to do her bidding with the smallest gesture. The moment she heard a sound, the items would set themselves down as if they hadn’t been acting of their own accord just moments earlier. My father would come home and rant and rave about more and more witche...

“ Blood and Cookies ” by Daniel Allen

TW: Contains some descriptions of blood and violencePhilip smiled at me as I shuffled towards his counter. ‘Morning Frank, how can I help you?’Good. If Philip was in a cheerful mood, that would make this much easier. I smiled back at him. ‘One course of antibiotics, please.’He eyed me with concern. ‘You’re sick?’‘No,’ I replied. ‘Katy is. She’s got crimson fever.’Philip’s eyes widened. ‘I’ll get your meds right away.’ He put on his spectacles and turned to rifle through the bottles an...

“ a raw deal with the devil ” by augustine maddox.

(Story contains allusions to torture, but no actual depictions of it) “So, what’s the catch?” The demon hesitated. The sulfurous smoke billowing from his form dissipated slightly as his concentration wavered. His wings drooped. The arm he had been holding out lowered; the contract in hand, written in red ink on shining golden paper, dimmed. “The…catch?” He rumbled, bemused. “I t...

“ Bridge Bargain ” by V. S. Rose

Agor unfurled the crinkled yellow parchment and grinned at the deed in his hands. For a troll, securing the most trafficked bridge in Rhodinia was a life’s ambition. It had cost him, but even the depleted coin purse tucked into his loincloth couldn’t have dampened his spirits today. For the first time, Agor gazed upon Krakow Bridge. Stretching across the rumbling Tibeth River, the bridge was comprised of four arches, divided by three piers of interlocking stone. The parapets were the tallest he had ever seen, perfec...

“ A Millennium Hoard ” by C. A. Janke

Four million six hundred thousand and eighty-seven, four million six hundred thousand and eighty-eight, four million six hundred thousand… Nearly seven days had passed since he began and almost every relic, coin, gem, weapon, bone, miscellaneous magical artifact, and whatever-else-have-you was categorized and accounted for. This was easily his largest hoard yet, and though Wyrith had kept only his most favourite thousand or so rubies from his preceding collection, this hoard was already more than double his last largest on...

“ patience ” by ashley simpson.

“So, what’s the catch?” I heard my lone customer call out from across the room. He was facing the wall of crystals, messing with the organization that I set up that morning.“Huh?” I responded from my seat behind the counter. “I don’t think I understand the question. You give me money, and you get to walk away with the item you bought.”He exhaled loudly. “No, I mean, how do these stones work? Do I just… hold it? Will it give me my inspiration back?”Without looking up, I conjur...

“ The Eyes of Ignorance ” by Lovga Keiser

Past a field of Lollypocks, through a barren-leaf forest, under a festering mother tree, and between the red gates. A short trip. Our world and the veil was rife with all sorts of creatures, a malignant sprite to your left, a whispering fae to your right, an ugly abomination throughout, there was no escaping the interactions that would be made but I could do my...

“ The Fine Print ” by Kendall Defoe

“So, what’s the catch?” To be honest, he was getting ready to go out that night and did not expect that he would have to deal with such nonsense after making the offer, but nothing ever worked out the way he expected it to with these people. There was always some small little problem that was never anticipated. All these years and all those surprises… “I beg your honest pardon?” “Honest, right… What ...

“ The Maze ” by Russell Susko

Which is worse? I wondered. I knelt on a hard stone path; my shaking hands held over a glowing fireorb. I wondered what I despised more, the frigid wind whipping through the maze’s hedge rows, or the dark gray clouds creeping across the white sky. “Why did I get myself into this dreadful position?” I asked aloud. Carron was supposed to be here, within the maze, searching for its center, for the great prize that...

“ A Love as Pure as Gold ” by Maggie Hardy

“So, what’s the catch?” “That is for you to determine, young king. Though you must swear to accept any and all consequences.” The young king stared at the shining goddess. In his mind, deep within, he knew this had to be too good to be true. Though he couldn’t possibly imagine any consequences with such a gift. So, he turned those doubts away. For what evil could come from a golden touch? Besides, his ki...

“ To Bargain With a Faerie ” by Zoë Page

“So,” I said tentatively, “what’s the catch?”I sat awkwardly perched on a tall stool by The Upturned Pint’s bar, swizzled round to gaze at the faerie before me. Its alien beauty struck me – I had never seen one in person before, had only ever heard stories of their strange human yet inhuman likeness. This particular one had long, silky hair the color of green apple; its skin a waxy, pale color, like an apple’s flesh; and red lips just a shade too deep to be natural, bold against the drapes of its hair. Little ac...

“ The Woman of His Dreams ” by Steven Lente

The Woman of His Dreams      Alex Ferber woke at his usual time, conducted his usual morning ritual, ate his usual breakfast, and then dressed in his usual non-descript uniform: white shirt, green slacks, brown shoes.     Alex walked to work along the same route he had taken for ten years; the scenery was always the same, the weather was always nice. ...

“ The Book of Fairies ” by Micah Smoot

“So, What's the catch”? Arrietty asked in a shaky voice as she stared at her friend and master seemingly lifeless body. The man smiled as he walked towards her, his feet making no sound as he moved them on and off the floor. As if he was walking on air. “Catch”? He says as if the concept was utterly foreign to him. “No. No. Don’t think of it like that,” he said, “Think of it more-so like…like a gift”. “A g...

“ Organ Debter ” by Eliza Troy

               “So, what’s the catch?”               “Ain’t no catch. You pay cash now, or...” The Collector glanced at my chest, half hid beneath the table. “… you pay with your, uh, you know.”                I pulled fresh bristles of a growing beard under my palm. “What kind of organs are we talk...

“ Eddie Goes A-Courting ~A Spring Romance~ ” by Cindy Strube

Eddie Goes A-Courting~A Spring Romance~“He-elp! He-elp!”Breaking the tranquility of a March morning, a desperate cry rings across the valley. No man runs to assist, nor even a woman lifts a finger to dial 9-1-1. Here and there a lip twitches. An eyebrow raises. Perhaps a chuckle or a sigh escapes. “He-elp!”Again the call resounds. Looks are exchanged, acknowledgements murmur...

“ The Ferret and the Three Keys ” by M B

“So what’s the catch?” the gray furred ferret asked, her arms folded over her leather-clad bosom. Her muzzle was turned up in a smirk as she challenged the male coyote. The ferret leaned against the wall of the cellar the impromptu meeting was being held in. A few lanterns hanging from the wall were all the illumination they were provided with.  The coyote’s ears twitched as he grinned a t...

“ OneThing ” by Dannie Dane

All my life I have felt held back by something, MYSELF. I have struggled with being overweight for as long as I can remember. it started out as me gaining an interest in food especially sweets like candies, ice cream, cake, cookies...etc. Me as a kid didn't really understand gaining weight, I had never thought it was a problem. my family never said anything when I had just started eating more than my body could handle. i...

“ Dead Life ” by Gabriela Grad

(sensitive content: the story contains the theme of death) Yuta would have had complete happiness, had it not been for the fact that he was alive. And afraid of drying. That’s what pushed him to do the deal with a dark-valley creature all those years ago, after all. Yuta used to be everything, twenty years ago, before the deal tied him to the factory. He was a rising artist, a riveting poet. A ma...

The Best New Fantasy Short Stories

We typically associate fantasy with world-building, expansive imaginary realms stretching the bounds of our imagination, and hefty paperbacks of a thousand pages. In one sense, fantasy seems to be defined by the fact that it usually reaches us in large doses: trilogies, series, universes that keep on giving. But fantasy short stories can be just as effective in honouring the scope and ambition of the genre — here, every word matters. 

Fantasy short stories pack in a lot in just a few minutes’ worth of reading time, so pay close attention, and you’ll soon find yourself transported to another world. There, you’ll be hit by the vividness of this new reality in a flash. It’ll be a truly magical experience (with some actual magic involved in the story as well).

The Magic World of Writing Fantastical, Epic Tales

I’ve always loved writing fantasy, simply because in fantasy you can leave all your worries about the real world behind. Fantasy writing is your chance to explore your imagination and discover all sorts of magical and mysterious things.

One of the biggest perks of fantasy writing is unlike realistic fiction, there needs to be no logical sequence for how things happen. You can finally use magic as a reasonable and acceptable explanation for everything.

Like all of our  writing prompts , these fantasy fiction prompts and plot ideas are varied on a number of different subjects that can fit into the fantasy genre. Many of these fiction writing prompts can be used for sub-genres of fantasy, such as paranormal romance, urban fantasy, magic realism and more.

Not a fan of the subject? Prefer to stick to medieval times? Any of these epic story ideas can be adapted easily simply by substituting the suggested character with your mythological creature of choice.

Don’t forget, if you like some aspects of a prompt you can always change it for your own needs and what interests you most. The possibilities are endless, and I know there is a book idea here waiting for you to write and publish it .

Even if you don’t have any intentions of writing a fantasy novel, there are many benefits of practicing creative writing with these fantasy writing prompts. Set a timer for 5 minutes and let your imagination run wild with one of these prompts – you never know where it may take you.

Fantasy Writing Prompts for Creative Fiction, Novels, Short Stories, Screenplays and More

When Summer turns 16, Mordred, King Arthur’s supposedly dead nephew, rises, and attempts to take over the world, Summer must team up with Iclyn, A girl born on the winter solstice, with winter powers (summer had summery powers) Lily, a girl with powers born on the spring equinox, and Autumn, a girl with powers born on the fall equinox.

I have written 7 books so far but, and yes, it’s a big BUT, none have managed to catch a big publishers eyes or be the word out there for it to reach the masses. Looking for a big publisher for my 8th manuscript. Shaida mehrban

Hi Shaida, have you considered working with an agent? Sometimes they can help you find a publisher and may be able to give you some feedback on what might make your books marketable. Hope that helps and hopefully you will be able to publish one of your books soon!

I think that some of these are very good, such as the patients that are thought of as crazy story, and the candle in front of the mirror, but others are a bit childish.

I’m glad you were able to find a couple that intrigued you!

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.” – Madeleine L’Engle

HI, I have a question? Can I get permission to use the ideas in my stories!

The problem is: the only person who has a clue to her whereabouts is a young boy she hasn’t seen in nearly twelve years. But, he’s not really a boy. He’s a centuries-old fairy who appears mostly human. Except for the fifteen feet raven wings sprouting from his back. What really happened on the night the girl’s mother disappeared, and why does it feel like she isn’t being told the entire truth about her.

Thanks for sharing your plot idea H.R.!

Novel ideas to rejuvenate our creativity

I have so many story ideas and I did wrote some out but threw them away (oops) I did write a story but lost interest in it cause so much stuff was happening and now, I’m trying to focus on 1 but don’t know where to begin or how to write it :< I really like fantasy and your ideas are cool ^^

Glad they inspired you!

this is a nice idea and i would really like to see what u have got.

I was thinking about an idea for a novel and I was wondering if you had any thoughts on it.

Eren Hawkings wakes up from a coma after a dangerous car crash. During his Coma, he has strange visions that show to him the future of the world. And Eren’s entire life layed out before his eyes. During these he finds out that he will find true love. However, his love will die at a very early age to a rare virus. He will not pass through college, becoming a victim of a school shooting. His friends leave him to survive on his own in the world. How will he handle these visions, and will he be able to stop these visions from becoming reality.

(I’m only 13 and still learning the steps to becoming an author)

There’s really no such thing as a bad idea for a book – it’s all in how the story is told and how it develops. I was 14 when I wrote my first novel – it’s simultaneously the worst and best thing I’ve ever written. The worst because I was a beginner and its badly written. The plot is a disaster, the characters are cliche, the grammar is painful.

And yet, it’s still one of the best things I’ve ever written. Writing something badly is what helped me become a good writer. {And writing things badly is actually the entire premise of the book I’m currently publishing!}

The best way to learn is by doing. Start writing! You can always edit/revise/write a different story later.

Story idea: There are four ancient tribes in a feud. Little do they know, a darker force than them all intends to get rid of them. Four girls from each tribe, intend to find out why the feud started in the first for the sake of saving there tribes.

It is somewhat like Hunger Games

Good ideas, guys!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Great Ideas, thinkwritten! They’re really inspiring!

i am doing a fantasy book for kids for school and i need ideas

Hi I just want to repost my idea. A girl wakes up and she has no idea where she is. Soon, she realizes that she is trapped in a laboratory/maze inhabited by a crazy alchemist or somewhat. The reason she’s captured is because in her past life, she had a terrible secret that he needs to know. But she refuses to tell him the secret after she communicates with the ghost of her past life. eventually, she escapes and defeats him and saves her past life and her present one. Except, she is unaware that since she doesn’t tell him the secret, there is a terrible cost about to destroy her utterly.

I kinda changed it.

I love that idea. Thank you!!

I’m planning a DnD campaign with a general, really loose idea, using these to fill in some gaps and make it more interesting.

Heyo! This was very useful, thanks yours so much 🙂

I’ve been trying to write a really good story for a while but I’m stuck. Can you give me any ideas including the following? Thanks in advance. (I will be checking my email every day for your reply 🙂

Fantasy Elements Jars Mystical Creatures

Hi. I have an ideas but I get writer’s block. I can’t write properly. My idea to develop is the Ghost Train or The Snow Dragon 🙂 can you please help me write a story and help get rid of my writer’s block 🙂

thanks a lot i’m behind lots of essays and you saved my life thanks a lot I will come here if i need any more ideas. – See you later

Story Idea: Nora Redford has grown up without a mother. When one magical Christmas Eve she is given a wish, she asks to see her mother. Nora is given a map to the Island of The Dead and she goes on an adventure through different worlds to find her mother.

This would be a good book

if anyone publish stories on these concepts will u remove that particular concept???

Possibly, maybe. Depends if you follow my original open source licencing model.

Oooh I really like it!Is it okay if I use it?

Every time i go over to our grandmas my cousins and i all play these games based on fantasy and Mid evil. Lately we have run out of ideas, so i am for sure book marking this also my parents tell me to write so this will make it a lot more fun!

Here’s my idea:

In Northern England, a gang of teenage girls discover a magical jewel that belonged to the Romans. The Romans used that Jewel to put a curse on their newly conquered land, a curse that would turn all teenage girls there into boys. When the Romans left Britain, the curse was revoked and they destroyed any evidence: expect for that one jewel. They buried it and made a sign reading “Non tangere” (do not touch) next to it. the teenage girls ,manged to get it and horribly pronounced the magic Latin spell next to it, awaking the curse.

This has been really helpful. Thank you so much.

Thank you very much!!! My english teacher assigned me a homework of writing a novel in a month.. These plot ideas are so cool and helpful!! By the way, isn’t the ‘soul fragment ” plot similar to Voldemort’s in the Harry Potter series? And, I have another problem..I just can’t think of a really rare female character name. Could someone please suggest me some names?

Perhaps, Rivera, Eve, or even Coral?

Well, one more thing that people could write at the end of the story is that it was all a dream!

Hi, there! I want to write a story of the Nutcracker but I am stuck tight! I’ve written several attempts on the story but every time, I bump into a wall. Something’s just not coming out the right way. Need some help here!

Hi Mary Ann, did you create an outline? That can help you identify a roadmap for the story so that when you hit a wall you know which direction to go. Keep trying, I know you can do it!

Very well-written! Thanks for sharing this great article Chelle.. Writing Fantasy Fiction doesn’t have to be daunting and difficult. Thank you!

Dren kind of works; I’ve used it for a character who’s transfluid, but I don’t know what you’re swinging for :P.

There’s also Feven, which looks weird but it’s pronouned like Raven but with an F, so it’s pronouned Fay-ven, or Fae-ven. The spelling is also changeable, since it’s your character! Do what fits.

Farah, which I just think is pretty. :>

Nimah, which I also find pretty. (I find a lot of things pretty XD)

Leyra, which is also changeable, Laerah, Leira, do what you feel is right.

Kioni, (pronounced key-o’-knee; funny spelling huh?) I had a friend named Kioni, and I just thought the name was pretty unique.

Soriah; (pronounced as it is, so-rye-ah, and the spelling can be changed!) my older sister was going to be named this, but at the last minute she was called Christa instead. (Christa is just a variation of Krista, as my name, Jayda, is a variation of Jada.)

If you’re feeling fancy, you can even use my middle name, Zaharra. Or Zara if you want it shorter.

That’s all from me! Hope I could help!

So uhh this is my short story that I made for the first one. The Snow Dragon. It’s kind of long so if you don’t want to read it then it’s fine but I saw other people doing this so I thought why not? I trek up the mountain, putting one foot in front of the other, determined to finally get to the top this time, while the sky falls in tiny crystal balls around me. Soon the snow starts plummeting down in sheets, blocking my path and covering everything, the trees, the grass, and the ground in a sheet of white. Trying to escape the gloomy weather, I look for a cave. I remember finding it the last time I was exploring the woods and mountains near my house. The truth is, I live in the middle of nowhere and it gets quite lonely when you are the only person your age around. It’s just my mother and father, who are faithful farmers. My father goes to the village nearest here every other week in our only carriage to trade food for clothes and other necessities. If I remember correctly, the cave is somewhere around the clearing a few meters ahead. After searching more thoroughly, I find it carved inside the edge of a hill covered by the shade of trees and bushes. The gentle snow seems to have turned into a storm in the last few minutes. I step inside and take off my scarf that was covering my face and finally breathe freely. I rub my hands together to create some heat. After I have made myself comfortable, I finally take in my surroundings. The cave is dark and covered with jagged rocks everywhere I look. Every nook and cranny is sharp and the shadows dance in the changing weather, taunting me to come to them. There are a few insects scuttling around on the floors. I see a spider web on the rocks. A flea is stuck on it. I walk in deeper, ready to investigate the strange cave further. As I trudge along, I see something that makes me freeze. Something big and alive. There is some sort of creature in the furthest corners of the cave. And it seems to be sleeping. As I walk closer to it, I make sure to keep my footsteps light. Now I am standing right on top of it. I think that it is an animal. It’s skin is white, it’s head is tucked into itself and it is curled into a ball. Definitely sleeping. The creature’s white tail is flipping back and forth as if it is having a pleasant dream. No, wait, that’s not skin. That’s scales. The entire animal is covered in scales. Strange. I have never seen something like this before. Only small animals like snakes and reptiles have scales. I reach my hand down to touch it, now only centimeters away. The tip of my finger brushes what I’m assuming is the head. The tiny creature whips it’s head around and a growl arouses from its throat. I stumble back in surprise and fall back on my behind. The animal stands up on all fours and shakes its head, letting out a small blast of fire in the process. You see, the white scaled creature isn’t an animal at all. It’s a dragon.

These are the best writing prompts I have ever seen! I love this site and your writing! Thank You! #Never Stop Writing!

Hi, I am having trouble with writing a book.

Fantasy Books For 4th Graders

The thing I love most about fantasy books is how many kinds of fantasy books are out there: high fantasy, portal fantasy, xenofiction, epic fantasy. The list goes on and on!

So even if you think you don’t like fantasy, there is probably a subgenre of fantasy that you WILL enjoy. Today I will walk you through some of the fantasy genres and provide some fantasy book recommendations for kids in 4th grade or around 10 years old.

Fantasy Books for 4th Grade

High fantasy.

High fantasy is what one usually thinks of when thinking of fantasy books. High fantasy takes place in a totally fictional world from our own. It is a made-up world containing fictional creatures, and at times, fictional languages.

The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill

“Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. Their goal is for her to stop terrorizing their town. Even so, Xan is nice. Xan rescues the children and takes them to families who will welcome them on the other side of the forest. He feeds the babies with starlight as he goes. One year, Xan feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, giving the child a lot of magic. Luna is a little girl who Xan wants to raise as her own. Luna's thirteenth birthday is coming up, and her magic starts to come out, which can be dangerous.

The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker

"Princess Emeralda, also known as Princess Emeralda." Emma isn't the best princess. There aren't any tinkling bells in her laugh, she trips over her own feet and she doesn't like Prince Jorge, the man her mother hopes that she will marry. She doesn't like him. But even if Emma thought she could get away from her problems, she didn't think she would turn into a frog to do it. When he was told to kiss a frog so that he could return to being a prince, somehow the spell backfired and Emma turned into a frog herself! In this way, their journey began. They are on a search for human form.

Hogwarts is a magical place, and if you like that, you will love these high fantasy books!

Low Fantasy

On the other end of the spectrum, low fantasy is what you'll find. Magical or supernatural forces are present in low fantasy, but the story takes place in the real world and in our time and space. Often, it is called magical realism, which is a mix of the real world with magical things in it.

James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

Is James going to be able to move at a normal speed again? James lost a lot of magic when he tripped and spilled the crystals by the old peach tree. He looked like he couldn't get away from the ants. Is that peach still there? Was getting bigger and bigger. Was it as big as a house? In fact, when James crawled into the house, there were a lot of his friends there. There were a big grasshopper, a ladybug, a centipede, and more. There was a moment when the peach was rolling away and "amazing things began to happen."

The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks

Omri has a birthday today, but his best friend, Patrick, only gives him a little Indian toy. As a way to hide his disappointment, Omri puts the Indian in a metal cabinet and locks the door with an old key that once belonged to his great-grandmother. As soon as he turns the key, Omri will make his plastic Indian into a real person from a different time and place! As soon as Omri meets the tiny warrior called "Little bear," the two form a very special friendship that lasts for a long time. Will Omri be able to keep Little Bear?

If you like reading books that have a world inside of a world, check out these magical books!

Portal Fantasy

Portal fantasy is one of my favorite things to read or write about. It's like a doorway to another world or dimension. Some of your favorite books that you didn't know were part of a specific genre.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

She ends up far away from home in the world of Wonderland after a fall down a rabbit hole." In the course of Alice's journey, she meets a variety of strange people and animals: the White Rabbit, the March Hare, the Mad Hatter, and a lot more.

If you like books that mix real-world stories with magic, you might like these other portal fantasy books!

Fairy Tales, Folktales, and Myths

Another type of fantasy is fairy tales, folk tales, and mythology. Classic stories about good vs. evil and stories about how the world came to be are just a few.

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Iconic: It tells the story of a little boy who leaves the safety of his own little planet to travel the universe, where he meets some very interesting people. His personal journey ends with a trip to Earth and more adventures.

The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman

"A Prince and a poor person." In the end, Prince Brat and his whipping boy end up trading places after getting into trouble with dangerous outlaws. In this case, the two boys have no reason to like each other. But when they run away, they have no choice but to trust each other.

If you like Tales of Beetle the Bard or old fairy tales, don't forget to read these books! They're both great!

Science Fiction

Scientists and physicists might be thought of as separate genres, but they are in fact part of the fantasy genre. Stories about science fiction are based on "imagined future scientific or technological advancements," and they often show "space or time travel and life on other planets."

The Wild Robot by Peter Brown

In the wild, can a robot stay alive? She finds out when she opens her eyes for the first time that she's on a remote, wild island. There's no way for her to know how or why she's here. She just knows she needs to stay alive. In the end, after she had to fight a storm and escape a bear attack, she realized that her only chance of survival was to adapt to her surroundings and learn from the island's animal residents. This is how it works: As Roz gets to know each animal on the island, it starts to feel like home. Then a mysterious past comes back to haunt her.

Want more sci-fi books? Click on the picture below.

Science fiction and dystopian fiction are good for kids who like stories about people who have to fight to stay alive.


Xenofiction is another type of fantasy literature. How do you know what xenofiction is, you ask? It's a story from the point of view of an animal. I have given you your Surly Housewife trivia for the day.

Poppy by Avi

Mr. Ocax, the owl, says he will protect the mice living in an old farmhouse as long as they ask permission before "moving around." Deer mouse Poppy is very afraid, but until she sees Mr. Ocax eat her mouse fiancé, she's a loyal and obedient servant. On a dangerous and eye-opening quest, Poppy meets Ocax, who she fights one-on-one in the end.

Fantasy Book Series

It's one of the things we love most about fantasy books, because they tell great stories. And sometimes, the stories can't fit into one book. In, the book series. This is the first one. It turns out that some of the best-known book series are fantasy books!

The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Narnia is a world that is always frozen in winter and controlled by the White Witch. Four siblings, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie, step through a wardrobe door and into Narnia." But when almost all hope is gone, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, means a big change and a big sacrifice.
