Writing in different forms (with your peers)

Daily Prompt

WN #44: Inspired by Quotes

quote

Inspired by this quote image, beginning writing a fictional story.  Write for ten minutes. Please note you will be sharing this with your peers.

We’re going to play with form again, but this time, we’re going to swap notebooks so you can capture the writing voices of your peers in your notebooks.

Start by swapping notebooks with someone at a different table.

 

Read your peer’s daily response prompt.  Continue where they left off in play form.

Write for eight minutes.

 

Trade notebooks with someone at a different table.  Read the entire daily prompt.

Continue where they left off in poetic form (any style you like).

Write for eight minutes.

 

Trade notebooks with someone at a different table.  Read the entire daily prompt.

Continue where they left off in screenplay form.

Write for eight minutes.

 

Return the notebook to its original owner.

 

Read your entire daily prompt.  You should now have:

*your original short story
*a peer’s play script
*a peer’s poetry
* a peer’s screenplay

What do you notice about your peers’ style and voice?  Can you define it in a word or phrase?  How do their writing voices compare to your own?

Have a fantastic Thanksgiving break and make sure to read a good book and keep writing!  🙂
