Midweek writing prompt – routine disruption

Pavement cr Judy DarleyA familiar walk – to and from work, for instance, or to visit a well loved friend – offers all kinds of possibilities for writers. All you need is for one detail to change, or be noticed, and your character’s whole world can shift.

This week I invite you to accompany your character on a stroll they know well, then point out something unexpected, something familiar and long forgotten, or expose them to an incident that challenges everything they thought they knew about their world.

Then stand back and see what happens next.

If you write something prompted by this, please let me know by sending an email to Judy(at)socket creative.com. With your permission, I’d love to share it on SkyLightRain.com.
