How is marathon month going? Are you still at it? Keeping up? Hitting your wall? Haven’t really started yet? I was hoping to get A LOT done this month and things have been slower than I anticipated. Much slower. But that’s okay.
For today’s writing challenge, take a long hard look at #357 up there. If the MC in your WIP was in the same race, how would they be feeling right now? Would they be catching up to Mr. 357? Would they be ahead of him? Would they be panting after a few feet? Hitch a ride with someone? Write a brief scene with your MC at a marathon. Play around with it. Think about why they’d be there; What would be the motivation? How would they prepare? Would they prepare? Who else would be there to cheer them on/compete with them?
Post your piece here and let’s see if in just one scene we can get an idea of the kind of person your MC is.
