Okay, I ultimately decided not to do NaNoWriMo this year. It’s better to focus on my still-untitled novel.

This week’s prompt is an interesting one, provided by a friend of mine.

First, write a scene. Any scene. Then rewrite it, but in a different genre. If it was fantasy, it could be horror. If it was a mystery, now it’s a romance. The key here is to try to change as little as possible. The location should be roughly equivalent and any dialogue should be mostly unchanged. The descriptions are what should shift it from one genre to another.

Then do it again.

Good luck and good writing!
