Creative Writing Prompt 49: The Ides Of March

Look at the inspirational picture and find plenty of story ideas for your creative writing!


Today, 2060 years ago, on the Ides of March (15 March), Julius Caesar was assassinated. He was very surprised to find that Brutus was part of those who assassinated him, a friend he loved like his own son. 


This betrayal alone can provide plenty of inspiration for a great story. How would you feel if a trusted friend suddenly stabbed his knife between your ribs?


What if Julius Caesar hadn't been killed that day? How would history have changed?


What if his spirit lived on in his statue in Rome; if he could see and hear everything but not move or speak? How does he feel, being condemned to stand on his pedestal in eternal silence?


Happy writing!
