I have just five minutes, here goes. I breath deep, lift my head and look up. Sitting in front of me…
The ability to describe is vital for all writers. That’s what this Friday Fiction Writing Prompt is all about. Let’s add a little tension to the scene, with heightened emotions and a time limit. Does that hinder or help you describe?
The scene is set. Your narrator, in first person perspective mode, is at a speed dating event. They have five minutes. What will they find? Will it be attraction or aversion? How will they act? How do they feel?
What do they notice? When writing, we can say a lot through what we don’t say. Your reader will pick up what sort of person the narrator is, by what they focus on and what they don’t! Are they more interested in attractiveness or quirks, cheekbones or cheeky language?
The choice is yours as is the how much you write. You are only writing about the events of five minutes, however, sometimes time appears to stand still at emotional moments.
Have fun and write.
