Writing Prompt for Saturday 11/19/16

Your Daily Writing Prompt

Daily Writing PromptThis week, we continue working on writing setting. Today, we will focus on how you can use setting to create or increase conflict. If you know your character’s backstory, you can put them in places that cause them distress to see how they might react, or you can set a scene in a place that has a deeper meaning for that character.

Today’s prompt: 

Fiction Writers: Write about a character who walks into a place where they’ve something upsetting or even traumatic happened in the past.

Memoir Writers: Write about a time when you returned to a place where something upsetting or even traumatic happened.

You can post your daily writing exercises in the comments section of the blog post if you’d like.
