This week’s prompt challenges you to write something outside of your comfort zone. It’s designed to push your creative boundaries and stretch those artistic wings.
What subject matter makes you cringe? Do love scenes make you blush? Does violence give you nightmares? (okay, maybe skip that one then) Does deep, emotional soul searching make you feel hokey? Grit your teeth and dive in. Your challenge:
Write a scene that focuses on something that makes you uncomfortable.
Skill tip: This is likely going to hit all kinds of personal buttons, so dig deep and tap into the character—these are their feelings or experiences, not yours. Let them filter what’s hard for you to write, which will help you create characters with different views from your own.
I understand many won’t want to share these, so perhaps share what type of scene or subject matter you’re attempting if the scene itself is too much. Also, if you have a good tip, share how you tackle hard-to-write scenes for those who are struggle with something you’ve overcome.
