When you respond to a writing prompt what is the first thing you do? Do you pick what characters are going to be involved or do you focus on what sort of plot you want to outline in the response? I usually pick the characters first and let the plot come to me from their interactions, but there is no wrong way to go about reply as long as you reply.
So this is our first writing prompt on written pandemic and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did when I first replied to one in this fashion. Remember: it’s about getting your juices going and getting something written down. For this first exercise I will leave you a list of a few words and phrases that you can pick from to respond to, you can either reply here or on your own blog or in your own personal journal, there is no wrong way! You can pick one word or all of them and create a larger response, again there is no wrong way.
If you happen to post your reply here in the comments please leave at least three words or phrases to inspire others to create their own stories.
