A Day In The Life

Re:Fiction  

This could make an interesting study on an existing character, or become the beginning of a new story.

Describe five different days from varying periods of a character’s life. How can a story be created or expanded upon from this kind of reflection?

Take this writing prompt for a spin:

  • Will you choose milestone days, ordinary days, or a combination of both?
  • Even if you don’t plan to use it in your writing, how might it be helpful for you to flesh out your character’s past?
  • Consider using different tenses and points of view to narrate the different days. How will this affect your story?
  • How much impact can one day really have on a life?
