Perhaps you’ve tried this all ready this month, but I’m going to bet that most of your stories have featured homo sapiens. Let’s switch things up today:
Write a story with a non-human protagonist/main character
- You could imbue an inanimate object with a character OR simply follow it through a series of owners’ hands, telling their stories as you go.
- You could write about aliens
- You could tell the story of an animal. Will you anthropomorphize the animals (like Beatrix Potter?) or will you tell their story from a more animalistic viewpoint, all smells and sensations and urges?
- What conflict will drive your story? Imminent danger? Longing? Adventure? Relationships?
