Time to flex those story-arcing muscles. I know you have what it takes to build a story from a spark of inspiration. So here's an opportunity to practice. Grab your blank Story Arc:
Then, using one of the prompts below...or this one from Fantabulous Words, let's fill out a couple of Story Arcs.
A woman's cat goes missing under suspicious circumstances and she's determined to find him - Fiction / Non-Fiction
The top five lessons you've learned over the last 10 years - Non-Fiction
A comet has been spotted hurtling toward Earth and it's up to a NASA engineer to figure out how to deal with it - Fiction
Best way to wash a car - Non-Fiction
Man is hosting his first dinner party - Fiction / Non-Fiction
I'm looking forward to what you come up with as the "rising complications" for the prompt you pick, so please share in the comments!
You'll only get better if you practice, so feel free to come back to this post as often as need be. I'll see you back here next week where I'll show you a copy of my Story Arc for my upcoming memoir, If Souls Were Tangible Objects. We'll chat about the ways I can help you turn this week's story arc into June's book release. It's simpler than you think.
Until then, sending you light and inspiration,
