Writing Prompt – November 3rd

Interview your main character – Ask him or her these questions and WRITE THE ANSWERS IN THEIR VOICE:

What’s wrong with your life right now?

What did your life used to be like?

If things were to work out the very best they could, what would that be like?

What would have to happen to make that happen?

What’s standing in your way?

Answer each one of these questions writing for 4 or 5 minutes each.

(Do this for every character in your novel, or person in your memoir, to identify the key motivators of their actions. We’ll assume for this exercise that they know themselves and are answering truthfully.)
