Think of a character (or even yourself!) for whom the pandemic is a major turning point, a plot twist.
What was the trajectory before this year? What were they aiming for before the outbreak occurred? How does the virus affect them? How does the tension rise?
Then comes the major turning point! How does this pandemic change things for them? It should be big, something that will change their major life decisions and their goals. How does it change them as people?
What is the resolution? How does everything end?
This post is part of a series I am doing that includes 30 prompts for 30 days of sheltering at home. You can read more about my reasoning and also find other prompts here. I would love to see what you come up with. Feel free to share here or to tag your work #shelterandwrite.
