You finally have a moment to write, but what to do with your limited time? Here’s a practical prompt to kickstart the story you’re working on right now. The clock is ticking, people. Start writing.
If you are in the early plotting/outlining stage of your story, try switching up the genders of your main characters. Maybe your first impulse was to make the bad guy a guy, but does he have to be? Ask yourself how it would change the story if you made him a her, or vice versa, and whether or not that’s a better approach.
