Non-Fiction Prompt #25
For this exercise, you’ll write about an incident from your life that has two sides to it. For example, you might describe an argument between yourself and a friend, or a life choice you made that your parents disapproved of. Begin by writing your own side of the story. Then interview the other person to get their version of events. Set these two sides of the story side-by-side and consider: How do the two stories compare? What biases does each person bring to the story? Can an objective truth be determined? Does hearing the other person’s side reveal anything new about the experience?
