Writing Prompt for 02/25/09

I thought I would add a bit every week for the writers out there. It may be a cliche, but the adage that "writer's write" is true. To continue to developing your craft you should write as much as possible. Using writing prompts helps make this an interesting exercise and helps generate story idea.

Your Prompt
Select someone famous, a celebrity, writer, political figure, musician, etc. Image that person doing your job (even if you are a full time writer) for one day. Some things to consider:

  • How does the person interact with your co-works, boss, and customers?
  • How does he complete your daily task?
  • In what areas does she excel, and where is it a disaster?
  • Does he participate in a car pool or in the office football pool?

For example, image Paris Hilton as a short-order cook. Or Gene Simmons as a customer service representative. What would this person's day be like?

Let me know what you come up with.
