Recall one of your busiest weeks. What all was on your calendar? How much did you actually accomplish? How were you feeling at the time?
Bring to mind one of your characters.
Your task is to create a week filled with too many obligations and not enough time to complete them all.
Begin by making a list that matches your character’s profile. Include at least one item for each day of the week.
Do not eliminate anything! Instead write the story of that week, being sure to include the character’s feelings as each day begins and ends, as each event approaches, as she prepares for the event, as the event is taking place.
Let us see inside the mind of the character. We want to feel what she feels, walk inside her along the way.
This will not be easy. It can also result in what appears to be a laundry list of activity.
When you are finished, edit the story down to the most exciting and interesting activities, the ones where feelings shine forth.
Have fun with this one.
