#AtoZchallenge: Q is for Quiet
A lot can be communicated in silence, that's why today's prompt is all about being quiet.
It certainly has nothing to do with the fact that Q is a tough letter in this challenge. So without making too much noise about it, here's today's prompt:
Write a 1,000-word story with a point-of-view character who cannot speak.
What are some ways you might approach this?
- Maybe your POV character could never speak, either from birth or a magical spell or curse, for example.
- Perhaps your POV character experienced something shocking and is temporarily mute.
- S/he could be somewhere that encourages silence, such as a library.
For the sake of the challenge, I suggest steering clear of internal monologue, too.
