If you haven’t had a chance to download the ebook, A Month of Writing Prompts by Julie Duffy, you should!

The meandering snippets are based on the prompts from Volume 3. The title is a reworking of the day’s exercise, The Ugly Duckling Structure. It seems simple how Hans Christian Anderson’s stories dealt with balance (sad beginning, happy ending) point by point.

How many of your stories have that structure, where the “Life.Changing. Moment.” happens in the middle, setting your hero/protagonist on a journey where all is now right with the world?

Of the projects ‘spinning on the plotter’s wheel,’ I might have an answer to share…tomorrow.
