The prompt I pulled from the deck today was about character development. Meh. I love character development, but I just didn’t feel like writing about this morning. In an attempt to jump start this, I started sniffing around on YouTube to find a video on how to develop characters. Again I was not being engaged by this prompt. However, I stumbled across this video on an entirely different subject: developing story ideas. The vlogger started by announcing that prompts don’t work in developing story ideas. Amen to that. Then she gives what I think is a brilliant idea: Steal from other writers! Yeah, really. But it is not as bad you might think. Watch the video and you’ll see. I’m going to give this a try. More to come on this.
