So, I missed a week, again! This doesn’t bode well, does it? I’m far behind, slacking on my blog updates, exam is looming only 1 month away, can I really finish this year long diary challenge?Â
You know what? I think I can. It’s not too late. It’s only September. I’ve got 3 and a half months to pick myself up and pull this thing off. The whole point of this year was to develop good writing habits, to spend a little time writing outside of the madness of November, and to generate some ideas. There’s still a long way to go and a lot to be gained. It’s not over yet.
But I am a week behind on the blog now so we need another double challenge to catch up. This week I want 7 scenes. They can be about anything you like but I’ll provide some optional prompts at the end that I plan to use. For each scene you write you then need to go back to the blank page for last week and write the same scene again as experienced from a different point of view. Here come the prompts:
Monday: scene involves a hero and a villain (obvious one to start with)
Tuesday: scene involves an adult and a child
Wednesday: scene between 2 friends, but one has a secret
Thursday: scene involves an animal and one of the POVs must be theirs
Friday: scene involves someone who thinks they’re alone, but they’re not
Saturday: write one scene in the 1st person, then again in the 3rd person omniscient (oh yes, let try the literal interpretation)
Sunday: finally, write a scene involving 2 characters who want the same thing, but don’t know it.
That’s all for now! See you next week (hopefully!)
*FYI – this post was written on Monday, it’s just being posted late because I’m in France and couldn’t get on the wifi at the hotel!
