Coffee-break exercise: Pros and cons


07 October 2022
Explore someone weighing up the pros and cons in this week’s creative writing exercise

Imagine someone trying to decide between two possible choices.

Decide what their dilemma is, and then write down the possibilities, and drawbacks, of each option for that person.

You’ll need to consider their character and life circumstances as you create their options.

Create lists or a chart if that’s a helpful way of arranging your ideas.

Write fiction or non-fiction in any form for 20 minutes.
