Hello Writers!Here is a prompt I recently saw on Writer's Digest that I absolutely loved so I'm just going to borrow it verbatim:Write a story or scene in which one or more of the characters knows that they are in a story. How long have they known? Do they care? If you want, take it a step further: The narrator absolutely hates the main character.Wishing you all a creative and inspired weekend...The CWW TeamSee More
