For today’s writing prompt, I want you to write a story about the owners of these rings. Tell where they met and how they fell in love. Describe the details of their wedding and how they felt when they exchanged vows with the love of their life.
Then, I want you to tell the story of how everything fell apart.
When did things start to go wrong?
Did someone cheat?
Did the other spouse get revenge?
What was said during the final blowup?
Describe the day they went down to the courthouse to file for divorce and how they felt saying goodbye.
This exercise will allow you to tap into both ends of the emotion spectrum, a muscle every writer needs to work out again and again until it feels natural and not forced.
