Vermont Author Susan Z. Ritz, whose debut novel is A Dream to Die For (SheWrites Press).
In our live in-studio conversation, Susan generously shared the following, which is now this week's Write the Book Prompt:
Pick up a box of buttons or bows or pieces of jewelry and choose two that are somehow different from each other. Think about the people who might wear or use these things. Write a scene where they meet somewhere - perhaps a café or park - and hold a conversation that begins: "Where were you last night?" Susan says her students have found this exercise to be a great avenue into scene, dialogue, and character.
Good luck with your work in the coming week and tune in next week for another prompt or suggestion.
