Exercise Wednesday: Oops, I did it again, again
Last week you made a list of mistakes your character’s likely to make, given their past. And last week, we said you we would revisit that list.
This week is here, and now you’re going to use the list you made last week and write a scene based on one of those mistakes. Only the scene is not of the mistake–it’s of the steps immediately before or immediately after that mistakes. After all, the mistake is just an event. The real fun comes in making that mistake inevitable or in cleaning up the mess after the mistake.
So get working, and write out that mitsake scene.
That misatke scene.
You know what I mean.
