Day 13 of 365:
Daily Post writing prompt,
Now You See Me
You have a secret superpower: the ability to appear and disappear at will. When and where will you use this new superpower?
What if I woke up tomorrow with the sudden magical ability to morph myself into any place, any time? Well, that’s easy!
Without a doubt, I would send myself into my story. Just so I could see what my characters think of the shit I am putting them through. I want to see for myself if the world I am creating for them is as decent as I think it is.
The chapter I am currently writing takes place in Toronto, during the mid-90’s. A time and place I would love to go back and visit first hand.
And I’m curious….
…to see if the scenes I am composing make sense and are as realistic as I think they are. What better way to critique your own writing than to actually visit it?
I would follow my characters around for a bit, without letting them know who I am.
Or maybe I would go up to them in the cafe, the one I built for them, and casually start up a conversation. I would be a mysterious stranger.
My characters would probably think I am weird and not cool and would no doubt try to ditch me.
But I would tag along with them any way….
What about you? Where would you send yourself if you had this super-magical-power? It’s fun to play pretend and let your imagination run away!….
