One of my favorite columns in the Sunday San Francisco Chronicle is “On the Couch.” It features a couple in the Bay Area, how they met and how their relationship works.
Why does this appeal to me? Because it’s all about character! It’s why I read stories.
Why do you read stories? Think about this as you are reading. Why does this particular book call out to you? Or why doesn’t it?
Writing Exercise: The title of this Sunday’s “On the Couch” column was Creative Quirks a Definite Perk. Use this as the title for your writing today.
Or if this doesn’t excite you, open the newspaper and choose another article title to employ as the source of your story.
