Steampunk Writing Prompts

Hahaha I’m gonna pretend it hasn’t been like a month since I’ve posted. I will probably type up a quick life update/overview post soon but for right now, I’m just gonna post this real quick. I’m excited to hopefully get a few more posts out seeing as how I took an impromptu month break without meaning too (oopsy daisy!) but I do have lots to talk about now that I’m back. I’ve gotten settled into my internship position, have gone on vacation, seen the ocean for the first time ever, and am now feeling refreshed and ready to write!

Phew! That was a lot. I have been gone for a month after all so I’ve been saving it all up I guess. Anyways, onto the prompts!


An city’s industrial economy begins to grow. Thousands of new factories are built and a heavy smog begins to coat the city, cloaking it in darkness despite the time of day. The people did not mind this until they realized the 24/7 lack of light attracted something…. 

★Victorian Avengers  

I don’t see why a steampunk city can’t have super heroes. Weave a tale of Victorian crime fighters. 

★Botanical Apocalypse  

As the industrial revolution begins, nature begins to fight against man’s machinery in an act of revenge and rebellion.  

★A Girl and her Goggles 

A girl steals a pair of goggles from a family member only to find a new perspective. The sight of ghosts and spirits passed greet her as she explores her home city and figures out what in blazes is going on?! 

★A Fox made of Cogs 

An boy who grew up in a forest far away from the city gets a job as an inventor in a bustling, Victorian metropolitan area. He accepts his fate but cannot shake this feeling of homesickness for the woods. So, in his spare time, he assembles together mechanical forest creatures, the most special and clever of them being the Fox. So, when the inventor is murdered, it is not wonder the Fox wishes to solve the case and enact revenge.  

★The Age of Dragons

The time of draconian domination has all but passed at the time of the industrial revolution. And yet many still survive, learning to cope with this cruel world that man has manufactured. Some have even managed to thrive. Some choose to befriend humans while others slink back into the sewers and abandoned factories and wait….

  1. Don’t worry about it, it’s been about a month since I’ve posted too! These prompts are good and it’s great to hear you went on a vacation in your month away. Also, congrats on seeing the ocean for the first time! Was it how you dreamed it would be?

    1. The ocean was beautiful, thanks for asking! So beautiful that I know I definitely want to go back someday! The water was also surprisingly warm due to the fact that it was the Gulf of Mexico and the way the warm water currents travel.
      Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my prompts! It feels good to be back!

    1. The ocean was LOVELY! We ended up going to the gulf of Mexico so it was pretty clean but super salty (it kind of burned if you got it in your eyes) but it was a great beach for shelling and I was beautiful to look at.
      Thanks for checking out the prompts! I think night stalker is my favorite too.

  2. Don’t worry about not posting. We all need a break from time to time. And it sounds like you enjoyed yours 🧘. How’s your internship going?
    I like the “A Girl and her Goggles” and “The age of dragons” prompts – sounds interesting🌚✨.

  3. Hi Brooke! I’m Lily. Thanks so much for these story prompts. I haven’t tried writing steampunk yet, but it looks really cool.
    By the way, I love your ‘About Me’ page, especially the critics’ review section! I thought it was so awesome and funny! (did I mention that I tried dabbling in origami a couple times too? I made a dragon, but I can’t for the life of me find the original instructions to do it again lol.) Anyway, it was really nice to meet you; hope you have a lovely weekend!

    1. Nice to meet you as well! Thanks for stopping by! You’re always welcome! And yes! Origami is strangely hard. Trying to fold the paper and not rip it can be difficult.
      Hope you had a lovely weekend as well!
