How did you get on yesterday? Did you write a story?
Remember, set your own rules, and stick to them. If you miss a day, don’t try to catch up. Just keep moving forward!
Take a story you wrote this month and rewrite it, differently
Sometimes a story works better in a different point of view, or told in a different order. If there’s a story you wrote this month, that you liked, and wanted to get back to, use today to rewrite it in a completely different way.
This will ease you into the idea of rewriting and revising (something I’ll be posting more about in June).
Consider these options
- Rewrite it from in a different voice (1st person instead of 3rd)
- Rewrite it from the perspective of a minor character
- Rewrite it without re-reading the original. Only write scenes/incidents that you remember. (When you compare them, if you find you’ve forgotten certain things, what does that tell you? Is it stronger or weaker without them?)
What did you rewrite about today? How did it turn out? Leave a comment.
