Day #7, Writing Challenge!

Guess what – it’s Day 7 and we’ve been writing for almost a week.
Hope you’re going well!


Today we’re continuing our theme of secrets.
They really are a powerful tool in fiction writing and poetry.


Fiction: Write a scene in which a character accidentally reveals
a long-held secret, and show the fall-out on all characters present.


If you write for children, you can make the characters two children
or a child and an adult.


Poetry: Write a poem about your secret of yesterday, *but* from
the point of view of the person who the secret is about ­ Part 2.
How do they see the secret? What effect has it had on them?
You will need to imagine standing in their place for this.


See you tomorrow.

  1. Jennifer Eagleton says


    I’m a clock, you can read me
    But you do not know the time I tell
    Just that when my hands reach a certain (arbitrary) point
    It could be the calm of early morning,
    Or the blue black of midnight
    Or the equilibrium of noon.
