Weekly Writing Challenge 19: Write a Short Story from Two Different Perspectives

Welcome to this week’s writing challenge prompt!

Stories are so much better when every character feels real. The best way to make that happen is to get to know each of them. What do they want? What’s motivating them?

Let’s work on that this week.

This week’s writing challenge prompt will help you write the same short story from two different perspectives.

Write a few paragraphs or pages from your protagonist’s perspective. When you’re ready, revisit the story from your antagonist’s or supporting character’s perspective. You’ll understand them better and potentially write a more compelling story.

If you wanted to, you could even go back to your protagonist’s draft and layer it with your secondary character’s experiences. It’s an excellent way to practice writing subplots as well because you’ll juggle two characters’ motivations and goals within the same plot.
