Why is it so hard to communicate openly when you’re mad at someone? This prompt explores fighting without talking at all.
Write about a fight between two people who can’t or won’t communicate directly with each other.
Take this writing prompt for a spin:
- Think about the nature of the fight. Is it over something life-altering, or something petty that has been blown out of proportion?
- Why won’t the combatants communicate directly with each other? Are they unable — language barrier, technology issues — or unwilling?
- Who gets dragged into the fight in order to be a go-between?
- Do these people have a relationship that has seen many fights before, or is this the first time they’ve butted heads?
