“Just take this as a warning. Know that there’s always a price for not being yourself.” Brenda Little in “Acting Out”
Since it’s my prompt, I’m picking a defense mechanism this week, acting out. Write about why your character might act out. What is s/he acting out against? Who is the character’s external struggle with (who is s/he acting out against) and how is s/he dealing with acting out (how is the character responding to overriding her/his moral compass/super ego)? Where does your character find her/his middle, where s/he is at peace with external forces while able to be true to her/his self?
