February prompts will be about feelings. From love to hate, writers need to consider our own feelings as well as those of the characters we are developing. Whether we are aware of it or not, our feelings motivate our actions. If your character is filled with sadness and grief, he will behave differently than someone who is full of lust or hate. Often, we pay no attention to our feelings and either ignore them or anesthetize ourselves so that we don’t have to feel them. Knowing more about your own feelings will help you develop yourself as a writer as well as the characters you write about.
Writing Prompt for February 1:
What feelings are you currently hiding? Why are you keeping these feelings to yourself? What do you believe would happen if you expressed one or more of them?
