Writing Prompt – Thursday 15th October 2020

Think of writing as being a pathway that you are travelling – sometimes alone and sometimes with others. Before you start, have an idea of where you are going. You don’t need to know every detail. If you don’t find the right travelling companions, don’t be afraid to journey on alone for a while. Pause at intervals to take stock of where you are – and to change direction if you want to. Remember that this is your journey. Take your own path to publication. Don’t feel you need to copy someone else.

For today’s exercise – imagine you or one of your characters are walking this pathway. What year is it? (Remember you can go backwards or forwards in time!) Where is it? What can you/your character see, hear and smell? Something unexpected happens when they reach the end of this path? What is it? What happens next?
