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?
