Bonus Prompt: The Writer

Photo by Lucie Liz on

Don’t be afraid to use this prompt day after day. For as long as you wish.

Our writer today is: Seanan McGuire.

Chose any story, novel or novella, or any combination thereof.

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 story:

What happened to jack and Jill’s parents that made them into who they are in the story, that allowed and encouraged them to treat their children this way?

What does Jill truly believe about her vampire master that makes her feel above all others?

What happens if Jack decides not to save her sister, but to allow the punishment to happen?
