Writing Prompt #260

For today’s prompt, here is a link to Authorial, agently and personal rambling‘s blog with a post by Diana Pharoh Francis. She has some great ideas for ways to torment our characters (because we know it’s all about the torment).

Pick an idea from the list and develop a scene of perfect character torment. Go deep into your character to figure out what they fear the most, and make it real for them.


  1. I think I may end up making the mc of my one nano immortal briefly as a punishment. “Try killing yourself now, you suicidal nutjob” etc.

    • For someone afraid of life, that could be an intense punishment, that’s for sure. As someone that has had a person close to me try to commit suicide, I’d go the route of counselling, though.
