This week's prompt, for example, involves writing a scene where Felipe and Joan are being chased through a subway station, and you get to decide who – or what – is chasing them!
With SoCreate's unique character and location imagery tools, you can easily visualize the scene and let your creativity flow without worrying about formatting.
Location: INT – Subway Station – Night
Characters: Felipe; Joan
Scene Description: Felipe and Joan bolt down the stairs into a seedy subway station. Lights flicker, and it’s dead empty.
Prompt: Write a scene showing Felipe and Joan in the subway station as they try to escape from something or someone. But that thing finds them! The audience can’t see what is chasing them, only the characters’ reactions to it.
