Quick Writing Prompt on Sensitivities

Everyone is sensitive about something—the bald spot, the love handles, the way we drive, our writing *wink*, hips, lips, gray hairs, old man elbows, bad fashion sense. We all have things we wish we could wave a wand over and improve in an instant. Here are some common insecurities people have.

What is your character sensitive about? Make a short list of her most sensitive traits.


Then, poke those sensitivities. What’s the easiest way to hurt your character’s feelings? Write a scene that upsets your MC's sensitivities.


Share your poking ideas below. It'll be fun to hear how you upset your characters. :)
