SPAM prompt line: Doctors make a stunning announcement
For this exercise, you can turn your imagination loose. What’s the stunning announcement the doctors make? Stretch for the satirical, the humorous, the outrageous. Free write and see what you can come up with. Turn conventional medical advice on its head. Solve the health insurance crisis with some cynical commentary. Announce a medical breakthrough of your own creation. Don’t stop to consider logic, don’t even try to make sense.
When you’re done, instead of waiting a day or two, dive immediately into your writing and play with the elements that appeal to you most. Create a second draft, even a third and fourth. Work until the steam evaporates, then put all the drafts away together to work on again at a future date. Eventual length and form are up to you.
