Today’s prompt – One and Then The Other… 

Find a news article that catches your eye. This news article needs to involve more than one person. It can be from a newspaper or an online site.

Write 500-700 words about the incident from someone involved. Whether you write in the first or third person is up to you.

Once you’ve done that, write 500 – 700 words again but from the point of view of another person mentioned in the article.

Re-read both of the pieces you’ve written. Are there any differences or similarities?

If you like, you could now merge them together with dialogue between the two.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
