working you into a lather


– 1 February 2015 –

Happy Sunday!

This week’s prompt is a simple question.

Okay, not so simple.

Begin with a character you know fairly well. Spend a while thinking about this character, their likes and dislikes, their needs, their character flaws, what makes them unreasonably happy.

Ask them this question:

What would you do right now if you learned that you were going to die in ten minutes?

And write.

You’re welcome.


Many thanks to philosopher Daniel Gilbert for framing that question.
