Writing Prompts for Teens

We all know those lists of school writing prompts that make you want to fall asleep halfway through the writing piece. We also know that feeling when you can't think of anything to write. I have found some writing prompts that (hopefully) don't bore you and will break through that writer's block.
1. Lost
2. Rescue mission
3. The heist
4. Amnesia
5. Teen writer
6. The villain's sibling
7. The villain's child
8. Prank war
9. Girls vs. Boys
10. Blind date
11. Secret admirer
12. You as a character
13. Homeschooler at public school
14. Seniors last day
15. The worst week
16. Treasure map
17. Modern fairy tale
18. Prison escape
19. No rules
20. That party
21. You disappear
22. The championship
23. Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer
24. The hardest choice
25. If you were in a movie

I didn't limit these to just one genre, I tried to keep them general so you could be creative. If you have any prompts of your own that you would like to share, comment them. Feel free to share these with other writers, they are certainly not limited to just teens.

Hello There!

First things first, a little bit about me. I am a high school student and I love school, don't get me wrong, I love summer too, but school isn't as bad as everyone says it is and I look forward to summer and school equally. My favorite subjects are spanish and history.
I am a two sport student athlete. I play volleyball and soccer and I adore them both. I run when I can (and when I feel like it) and I love to swim. I try, and most the time fail, to eat healthy.
I am the middle child in a family of five. Sometimes it's great, sometimes not so much. I have an older brother who is in college and a younger sister who is in elementary school. I love them to death, but sometimes they drive me crazy. Okay, so maybe they drive me crazy a lot. My parents are great, and even if I don't like the rules sometimes, I know they are fair. I have eight first cousins and I am the 3rd oldest out of them. I love my little cousins to death and they have me wrapped around their fingers, and they know it.
I love to travel and hopefully someday I'll have stayed a night in every state in the United States.
I have a garden where I grow mostly food, but some flowers too.
I listen to Christian and country music, an odd combination huh? My favorite ice cream is chocolate chip cookie dough. My favorite pops are coke and root beer. I love breakfast foods so much, if I could I would eat only breakfast and pizza. I don't like coffee (sorry coffee lovers, maybe someday) but I love hot chocolate. My favorite movie is the Lion King. My favorite book (okay so just one of my favorite books) is The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. If you haven't read it I highly recommend it.
I am oddly organized and it bothers me when things are messy. I'm not OCD enough to color cordinate everything, but my bookshelf is organized by author last name.
I love horses, but I don't own one. I love riding, but I usually only ride once a year. I hope I will own one later in life and maybe even train one.

So that is a little (not really it is as long as a book) about me. Feel free to comment questions or thoughts below!
