Today’s topic is redemption. For your exercise, do one of the following:
- Free-write about redemption for 10-20 minutes. What does it mean to you? How does it enter into your life or the lives of those around you? If you prefer a more fiction-oriented approach, how does it enter into fiction? How can it be used in plots and stories, either well or poorly?
- Brainstorm, write, or begin a story with a theme of redemption.
- Write a character portrait of someone who seeks redemption.
