Writing Prompt #11

Before I get to the prompt for this week, let me remind you that you can share your responses to the prompt either in the comments on this post, or in the comments on my response. If your response to the prompt is too long, let me know in the comments and we’ll get it posted as a regular post!

A rather fun scenario to work with is warring neighbors. Maybe it’s the next apartment down, or the next dorm room down, or your sister in the next room. Whenever people live in close proximity to one another, friction can mount and war can begin.

Pick a scenario where a character and their neighbors are getting into it over something that may at first seem trivial, but escalates. Use this exercise as a way to build solid character progression and make sure that each escalation is, while unexpected and unique, not out of character.
