Good morning writers,
This morning we are continuing to add to our characters and their storyline. Not every story has a perfectly packaged ending. Not every book is a happily ever after story. In the novel I am working on I write about loss and horrendous experiences. Today we are really honing in what is at stake for our character.
”What’s at stake?” is that question that makes our readers stay with the story. What does our main character or several of our characters have to go through to arrive at the ending?
These writing prompts may be used for your primary and secondary characters–your protagonist and antagonist:
Writing prompt: What my character wants more than anything else in the world is… the thing they are searching for is… how will they obtain it or not? (set timer for 25 minutes… BEGIN! Keep repeating prompt until you have the answers).
