The Theme


The theme for this prompt focuses on the nitty gritty of a dramatic scene, and developing showing not telling in story writing. Here, we'd like you to take a snapshot of a scene, and give it your undivided attention. Write a short piece that creates a still-life implying a dramatic moment. Overturned chair, papers everywhere, a particular stance. Do not describe what happened before or after this snapshot, imply it with the description.
