So I thought a writing exercise that combines aspects of the two would be fun. Here’s the prompt: If your life were to be made into a movie, what would the opening scene look like? Think about a defining moment, a hook that would capture the audience’s attention, or a laid-back introduction to the sweet and savored moments of your life. How would you introduce the story of your life to others? Would it be dramatic? Subtle? Intriguing?
You can write your opening scene in whatever format you want. If you want to write a script with dialogue, unspoken cues, and setting descriptions, go ahead. If you’d prefer to just write the scene out like a story, do that. Challenge your writing ability as you search for just the right words to capture what you visualize your opening scene should be.
Keep it to yourself, share with others, or share it with me (comment below or use the contact page)! I love reading the creative pieces you all come up with and am happy to share with you what I think you did well, and if you ask for it, offer constructive suggestions. Thanks for participating!
