Weekly Writing: Playing dress-up

By Midge Raymond,

  Filed under: On Writing, Writing prompts

On Halloween, it only seems fitting to write about costumes. It’s the one day of the year (for most of us, anyway) on which we get to dress up in outfits we wouldn’t normally wear and be someone — or something — else for a while. So let’s run with this in our writing today, too.

Write about a costume, personality, job, etc., that you (or your main character) has always wanted to try on. Maybe you’re not athletic, for example, but have nevertheless dreamed of being an Olympic swimmer; maybe you’re not musical but have always longed to sing. Write about a day of living this life — and see where it takes you.

Happy Halloween!
