Weekend Assignment: Bad Mood Rising

Welcome to another writing-filled weekend! This week I was reading an issue of Real Simple magazine. One of the regular features is a section devoted to reader responses to a monthly question. In this particular issue, readers were asked to describe what cures their bad moods.

Naturally, my writer’s brain took the notion and ran with it. In the end, it became this weekend’s prompt:

What snaps your character out of a bad mood?

You can pursue this prompt in one of two ways. First, you can choose characters from your own work-in-progress and write their responses to the question. Or, if you aren’t currently working with a fictional friend, borrow a few figures from literature, history, and/or pop culture and compose a list of fictitious response like one of these below:

“A day at the spa getting mani/pedis with friends.” ~ Jabberwock

“A long horseback ride through the countryside.” ~ Lady Godiva

“Just letting my hair down.” ~ Rapunzel

The responses can be as silly or serious as you like. Creativity is the key here.

Have fun and happy writing!
