Write-it Wednesday #7 — Just the Normal Noises

22 Jul

Everyone’s version of ‘normal’ is a little bit different. Write about an unusual characteristic of your family, town, or friend group. Why quark, tradition, or inside joke feels normal to you, but very strange to an outsider?


Select a character and make one up. A warning though, special ticks like this really need to have a story behind them and create a sense of history between the characters who share it. This seems like a very easy place to feel like you’re trying to hard. If you can make a reader feel like they’re a part of something unique, you’ve done your job.
