2020 Daily Writing Challenge: August 7
For my writing challenge, I am going to be working with daily prompts from the book “The Daily Writer: 365 Meditations to Cultivate a Productive and Meaningful Writing Life.”
So, today is: Creating Realistic Characters – “Prepare a bio-sheet of a character to include in a memoir or novel. Write a scene consisting of narration, dialogues, and action in which your character interacts with another.”
You know, one thing about the end of the day on a Friday, at the end of a first week back at work after a five week break from the madness that is my work life, is that I tend to really appreciate the theme free Friday ideal that my 365 photo project gives me each week. So, why not subscribe to that same theme here? Otherwise I have to push myself far out of my writing comfort zone which admittedly is narrow to begin with. I don’t have a lot of experience or practice with writing characters, given that my writing tends to centre around one character, that character being me…and quite a character I am, they say.
