Day 14, April 14, 2018 International Fake Journal Month

Here are the five prompts which YOUR CHARACTER can respond to or incorporate into his journal today.

List A: Finish This Sentence…

What's the word I'm looking for to describe –––––––––––––––––––––?

List B: Questions

Who has suffered the most?

List C: Quotations

Black ink only, no blue. I'm not a street artist. Captain Holt on "Brooklyn 99."

List D: Found Dialogue 

Kid: You aren't a good mom.
Mom: Why not?
Kid: What? Why? You aren't.

List E: Objects

Afternoon snack/late night snack. (Select based on the actual time you're working because we are always letting our characters work in present time. If you are a morning time sketcher/journal keeper think about switching to a different time today to explore it from your character's perspective. You might find he's more available to you later or earlier in the day from when you typically work.)
