Creative Writing Prompt Week #1

Take a look at your Main Character.



What do they care about?

What do they want?

What do they need?

A Character’s wants and needs seldom are the same, at least not at the beginning of a story.

What’s the biggest differences between their want and need?

Would your story be more dramatic if you switched these two things around? Some Authors make it so that their main Character can only have one if they sacrifice the other.


Play around with your Character’s wants and needs this week, and map out what changes would occur in your story line with each want and need.

Which would make a more interesting story?
