Writing Prompt for Sept 19, 2008

See it, Write it--The fictional dream (2)

WARNING, this video contains some profanity and profane gestures. If this might offend you, please don't watch it.

Watch the video then write the real time scene in objective omniscient narration. Don't go into anyone's head. Try to SHOW the emotions of the man in the tie. Don't tell the reader how this man feels.

Now, write the scene from the limited POV of the man in the tie. Use his thought, but don't allow it to come to the reader filtered through the narrator. Show don't tell, throughout. In other words, HIDE YOUR NARRATOR AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

Finally, write the scene that you imagine would follow this one.
