Hi, my name is Lisa and I usually host the Opening Act(ivity) program at Northtown on Wednesday mornings.

Writing Exercise: Choose Your Own Adventure

When I sit down to write a story, I try one of the writing exercises my college professor suggested. You write the story as you go, but whenever your character has to make a decision, you write both sides. If your character does this, this will happen. If your character goes the other direction, this will happen.

It is an interesting way to explore your character’s motivation and can lead to interesting results.
