Whether you are deep into NaNoWriMo or not, today’s writing prompt will appeal to all of us.
Today, take a story you’ve been working on and do a plot diagram of the story.
Then write down all of your characters and their names. If you need to, create a family tree for them.
Next, write a scene that takes place either before or after your story. It can be ten years before or after your story takes place or it could be five years.
The purpose of this prompt is to give you a bigger sense of the story you created. Could this short story turn into a novel? Could this novel be a series?
Experiment with this prompt and see where it takes you.
