Don’t be afraid to use this prompt day after day. For as long as you wish.
Our writer today is: Stephen King.
Chose any short story, or novel, or anything in between.
Find a place where you have questions.
Perhaps you wonder what this character did before the story begins.
Perhaps you wonder what that character did during the story that was never revealed.
Or perhaps you wonder what the other character did years after the story ended, or perhaps sooner than that.
Now, write the tale as it comes to you.
Let me give you a few examples from a single tale:
Why was Ben’s mom so hysterical about him eating? What happened to her that caused this?
Why was Eddie’s mom such a hypochondriac about Eddie’s health? What made her that way?
What was it about Derry that was so amazing to Adrian that he chose to move there and stay?
