Hampton Roads Writers


Being in touch with the things you are passionate about helps you write deeper, more meaningful stories.

Create a list of five things you love. From this list, pick one thing and have a character like it as well.

Write one page about this loved object from your character's point of view, making sure to change it up a little so that the character's view of the object is slightly different from your own.

If there is NO OBJECT about which you're passionate, list five things instead that you detest. Then pick one and allow your character to detest it as well. Your character's dislike for the object should differ in intensity, reason for why it is disliked, and expression of the dislike from your own.
