EPISODE 59: A Time I Had and an Unpopular Opinion.

Take the 12-step/12-day writing challenge. All 12 steps available on YouTube. For a more extensive video class, click here.  

Today on our show we bring you the winner of our fall writing contest--Jen Antill. The prompt: A Time I Had an Unpopular Opinion. This prompt reaped a story about a woman who is pregnant at 24, but doesn’t want to be. It turns out, she never wanted to be a mother.

Starting with a prompt like a time you had an unpopular opinion can lead to a story with tension, conflict, and high stakes, all of which make for a great story.

We received a bunch of great essays but this one really got to us, because Jen’s story was well-written and is about more than one unpopular opinion. We discuss Jen’s story after she reads and why we chose to share it with you.
