Welcome to another week of writing. Usually a story begins at a point or moment of change, but before that happens things appear somewhat normal. You job this week, is to write about a day at the office, either to practice how it is before there is change or afterwards. If you are in the middle of writing a piece or have recently begun a new story, remember, it is important to know what a regular day is for your main character.

Have a great day and happy writing!

W.P. # 199 Write about a day at the office.
