For today's prompt, write an interview poem. Maybe it's an interview for a magazine or TV show. Maybe it's a job interview. Or something more creative. Who ever or what ever you decide to interview or be interviewed by, have fun poeming!
Here's my attempt at an interview poem:
"Bartleby on Trial"
With slumped shoulders, the prosecutor
swept both of his hands through his hair
and said, "Let's try this one more time--
loud enough for the jury to hear--would
you please answer my simple question?"
The witness, a calm man who showed
no emotion, leaned over very carefully
and whispered in a voice so soft an ant
would have trouble understanding his
repeated answer, "I would prefer not to."

Great characters can be developed with a short interview, but they'll go nowhere without a strong plot and story structure to put them in action. On Thursday, Martha Alderson will lead a live webinar, Secrets of Story Structure & Plot, to cover this storytelling essential. Plus, attendees receive a copy of her book, The Plot Whisperer.
