Writing Prompt: In Someone Else’s Shoes
Writers block, defined as “a usually temporary condition in which a writer finds it impossible to proceed with the writing of a novel, play, or other work,” is a plague that we’ve all dealt with at one point or another in our writing careers. Ideas are hard to come by sometimes. Ideas are like fireflies; they flit in and out of mental vision, but they are hard to catch.
Keeping this in mind, a writing prompt will be offered here every Sunday (in different formats, of course). The length of what you write is your decision entirely. It is my hope that these prompts will spark creativity and kickstart the writing process.
This week’s prompt: You often hear people say, “You’ll never understand another person until you’ve walked a day in his or her shoes.” Choose a fictional character and walk a day in his or her shoes. Now write about it.
