This week’s writing prompt is actually a revision prompt. For our Third Thursday of April, we were lucky to have authors Margo Rabb, Varian Johnson, Carol Dawson, and Katherine Durham Oldmixon talking revision, and it has been inspiring us at the WLT ever since! This is a prompt that helps explore character and motivation in a scene that has already been written. It can be particularly helpful for a scene that you’re stuck on!
Take a scene from your story and rewrite it from the first-person point of view of each character. Make sure each character is reacting to what happens in a scene in a way that is believable and authentic to that character.
As always, please post your response in the comments section so everyone can read it.
