Writing prompt: Scale it up


07 June 2024
Take a basic situation and scale it up in this week’s creative writing exercise

Choose one of the following scenarios:

• Person sitting at home wondering where a family member has got to

• Someone owes money and needs to pay it back by a certain date

• Person having problems opening the wrapping on their lunch

• Someone has to reset their password on a website or device

Content continues after advertisements

• Two people bump into each other on a walk

Now scale that up, taking the storyline as far as you can in any dramatic direction.
