The word never is often used and frequently said in haste, but its real meaning was clear to me now
This week’s Friday Fiction Writing Prompt is about loss. We’ve looked at happiness and now it is time for a little sadness. The set-up is simple, something has been lost, something precious to your character. It is all about exploring the emotions that accompany absence.
Depending on your circumstances, and what you feel safe writing about, you can ‘lose’ anything. This prompt can be about a person, a love, an item, an ability, a pet.* The ability to write objectively about something that can subjectively be very emotional for us can be difficult but is a valuable skill for writers of all genres and professions.
No rules on word count etc. Just sit down and flex those literary muscles.
*If this is still too difficult you can write about an object that you can’t find. Explore the frustration that follows as you realise you can’t do something.
