Write a story or a portion of a story where your main character is mistaken for somebody else. Decide on a reason for your character to take on the role of this person, and take the story from there.
- Length: 1 scene, or a full-length story.
- Don’t focus too much on setting up the scene.
- Try to extend moments of mistaken identity.
- Explore the ability to control competing emotions.
Remember that guidelines are just that: guidelines. If you find yourself going in a different direction with this story, embrace the moment and go where the story takes you.
Inspired from The 3 A.M. Epiphany, an amazing book with hundreds of writing prompts.
I wanted to write a short notice to let you all know that MyForgottenPen is back up and running. Granted, the hiatus was a lot longer than expected, and for that, I apologize. However, we have a lot of exciting things ahead of us, including weekly instructional writing posts, prompts, occasional book reviews, and interviews!
The hiatus has finally ended, and it’s important to note that MyForgottenPen will be experiencing changes. No need to worry though, these are all good changes. Some updates we’ll be doing include:
- Less ads.
- Improved theme and layout for readability purposes.
- Weekly blog posts and writing prompts.
- Inclusion of occasional book reviews and interviews.
- Now welcoming guest posts.
- Guest post guidelines coming shortly.
These updates will come gradually, and the site should stay up and running the entire time. These updates are all for the readers benefit, so any input is appreciated. If there are any requests or suggestions, feel free to let us know in the comments section!
We’ll soon be accepting guest posts. We’ll have a guest post section up and running shortly detailing guidelines in case anyone would like to write a guest post for us. If you’re interested in writing a something before then, feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Top Image: Flickr | Priki)
You may have noticed that MyForgottenPen has been slow on the updates. This has to do with some pressing affairs that have yet to be sorted out. This notice is to let everyone know that MyForgottenPen isn’t dead, and is still very loved. However, until said affairs are sorted out, blog posts might not flow freely. Don’t worry, though. Come August, MyForgottenPen will be back in full swing with regular updates and sensational writing tips!
Thanks all for understanding.
