On day 17 of NaNoWriMo, we're headed into another weekend. It's the perfect time to boost your word count with this Double Up Challenge!
Today, writer, let's play a writing game called the "Weekend Double Up Challenge"
We're headed into another weekend. This is a perfect time to try to boost your word count up there as this next week may be a little shorter and unpredictable, due to the upcoming holiday.
Calculate your daily word count goal and double it
Do three sprints with the following prompts.
Incorporate two senses in your story. If your character has seen something, try adding in another way to experience something in your story. For example, have the lights go out and let them find their way out of a situation by sound or by smell.
Memories - Every show has that character building episode where the characters sit around and reminisce about the old days. Try a scene where each character is rehashing a version of past events that somewhat contradict another character's version of events. That will make for some interesting character-driven moments and it may help your MC figure out what motivates others by being able to see them in a new light.
Double double. Have your characters double back and return to a place they've been to before. What would they do differently having the knowledge and info at this point in your story that they didn't have previously?
