Alternate Reality

Hello everyone! Happy April Fools’ Day!

Your writing challenge for the next two weeks is to create alternate story lines (think the musical If…Then or the end of the movie La La Land).

Tell a story where the protagonist has to make a life altering decision. Your character’s choice will put him/her on one of two distinct paths. Have the protagonist choose one option and write about what happens. Then, go back to the point of decision. Have him/her make the alternate choice and write about what happens. Be sure that each option has consequences. Some can be positive and some negative.

Happy writing!
