Free Writing Workshop August 26th: Speed Date With Your Protagonist

  When writing fiction, your protagonist is the center point. There must be a reason your readers want to get to the end of the story, and seeing what happens to your protagonist is a key motivator. Your readers don't have to like your protagonist, your protagonist doesn't have to be the "good guy," but they do need to be compelling. This is a prompt-focused writing workshop to help you build the strongest main character you can. Come ready with your protagonist and your preferred tools to write!  The workshop is virtual over Zoom on July 22nd 2:00 pm-3:30 pm Eastern/11:00 am-12:30 pm Pacific  Sign Up This is a free virtual workshop through SCRiB LAB.  Find out more about this and other free writing workshops and resources on their website!

Collected Character Prompts: July 2023

 Every Wednesday I post a character writing prompt on Instagram @aurora_a_hurd . Here are July's prompts! I missed a week - it was a busy month! Prompt #40:  Write a detailed physical description of your character.  How do you plan on integrating that throughout the story?  Prompt #41: How do your protagonist's weaknesses align with  your antagonist's strengths and vice versa? Prompt #42: Does your character have a home to go back to?  Or is it home they're running away from?
