Yesterday was very busy, so I decided to prioritise my own writing instead of doing a writing prompt. As per usual, here are two writing prompts to make up for it!
In other news, I’ve been making a Spotify playlist for my nano novel. Lots of fun, spooky classical music if you want to check it out.
Writing prompt day 10:
Your main character’s emotional wound: What is the lie they believe about themselves?
Emotion is what connects us to stories, and even a high fantasy novel needs an internal protagonist. So what is the lie that your main character believes about themselves? Do they believe they’re too stupid, too short, too unlovable? How was this emotional wound inflicted–was it during their childhood? Tell a story about how they got this wound and how it affects them in their present. If you already know their emotional wound, then write a scene where the scab gets picked. Make your main character squirm. Make them do something irrational. Make them ugly-cry.
Thanks to Sara Hills for giving me the idea for this prompt!
Writing prompt day 11:
Have a good Thursday everyone!
