In honor of Mother’s Day your second writing sprint prompt is –
If your birth month falls during January through June your prompt is:
Your protagonist’s mother
If your birth month falls during July through December your prompt is:
Your antagonist’s mother
Tell us a story about her. Have a conversation with her. Interview her outside the courthouse. Pull the character’s file out of their therapists cabinet and describe what it reveals. How has she influenced them? Perhaps she died when they were young and new leaving only an absence to build a shape around. However you see her – however your character sees her we want to know.
Use only as directed:
This game is open to the whole community, not just those who signed up to write for May’s theme. For those who are working on their month-long story, the sprints are meant to help you explore your characters, settings, plot, and other components. The content of your resulting sprint DOES NOT need to be included in your final story. It is an exercise for you, not a requirement.
If you want to share what you wrote in the sprint, paste a link in the comments below. Sharing is also not required.
If you write something today and want to share it with us we’ll read it, and share some #commentlove as the reader sees fit. There is no voting for this exercise.
Typically a sprint would be timed, but since we are scattered across time zones and have work and families to attend to the only limitation I will give you is this – the time to share your sprint results with us will end Monday night at midnight (wherever you are).
The first writing sprint shared yesterday is still open until midnight tonight. Go check it out if you missed it.
There will be another sprint on Friday. Our flamestorming session is tentatively set for next Sunday around 4pm EDT.
#gospark your muse and hug your mothers if you’ve got ’em.
