Prompt 2/19/13: All the World’s a Stage
1) Imagine that you are a performer; pretend that you are adapting your life into a play, now focus on the pivotal scene in that narrative, and, finally, write the key piece of dialogue from that pivotal scene. (Preferably with no personal identifiers.)
2) Mix everyone’s notecards up in a bag of dialogue or a top hat (if you have one). Switch the pieces of dialogue around and read out all of the cards.
3) Write for 20 minutes using a piece of dialogue you heard that was not yours and not the one you read out!
