anne apart weekly prompt with drawing of hand and quill

Welcome back! I hope you could tell where the shifts in narrative distance were meant to be in my response to last week’s prompt. I think I succeeded in terms of bringing the reader close where I intended, but I had a very hard time figuring out how to make it clear that Aileen was assimilating with Rebecca through eating the cake. Let me know if you think that came through or not- I’d love your feedback!

Also, @glenn_whitlock1 penned a great piece based on last week’s prompt and I highly recommend you check it out, as well as his other writing, which can be found on his website.

For this week’s prompt let’s write 500 words of dialogue. Feel free to stick to two characters and leave off the “she said,” and “he replied,” if you’d like.

If you’re feeling ambitious:

  • give one of the characters something they’re trying to get across, without saying it outright (maybe they love the other person, but are too shy to say so)
  • or, give one of the characters something they’re trying to keep secret

Have a great week everyone!
