W.P. # 147   (As we all know Father’s Day is coming up, so why not honour the men/father’s in our lives by telling them how much they mean to us. And if you’re a guy, try to remember all the neat things your father taught you. Things that you will one day teach to your sons and daughters.)   Write about a memory of your father.

As writers (screenwriters, poets and artists) sometimes we get stuck in the process of creating ideas, forgetting for a moment that even if two novels share an inciting incident they will be inherently different because of the approach of their authors.

Today, I started reading John Lescroart’s  The Fall and discovered this aforementioned similarity with The Cuckoo’s Calling. On reading more I discovered that this tale was unique. Different. Because the story to be told wasn’t ab out a supermodel who had been murdered, but a teenage girl who was looking forward to moving out of a group home.

Writing Prompt # 143

Growing up, I much preferred my second name to my first. Or at other times anything that started with an S. I can’t say why I was so enamoured by names like Sarah and Sacha, except that they were the names of friends and characters I admired.

Look back into your past, your childhood  and imagine the name you wished you had. Now’s your chance. Take it. Tell that story.
