I haven’t put up a writing practice in what feels like forever. (Around 6 months)
This means that a lot of my newer followers don’t even know what my writing Practices are.
The writing Practice is a challenge… to writers… to write something.
I know a lot of the time we writers forget to make time to write. We have work and school and families and so forth that steal up all out time.
So this is to challenge you to take just a momment out of your busy life to write something.
This is how the writing practice works
- You can write a blog post on the topic of the prompt I will give. Then you link it back here.
If you do this and I like what you wrote I will put a link to your blog the next “Writing Practice Post”
- The second way to enter is by simply writing your answer to the prompt in the comments.
If you do this and I like what you wrote I will put up your entry in the same post. (No link to your blog)
Remember that if you choose the first way to put the # The Writing Practice among your tags.
Here is this week’s prompt.
Write about a character that is helping the typical hero character. This character doesn’t get any of the glory and hardly anyone even notices them. I want you to play with this invisible character. Perhaps they live in the hero’s shadow or perhaps they are invisible in a more literal way and can’t be seen.
Put this character in a scene where attention is drawn to them and write how they react to the sudden spotlight. Are they nervous? Afraid? Or even smug?
Good luck and get writing.
(also I promise not to let there be a 6 month gap between this post and the next “Writing practice.”)
