Suggestions and Hints:
Genre: This prompts falls into at least two genres: Women's Fiction and Thrillers/Mystery, depending on which direction your characters take you!
The grandmother looks so sweet and gentle in the picture, but don’t you be afraid to write a tough memory. Let the storyteller pour out her heart.
This prompt is also an opportunity for description, or what I call "mood" in my Five Ingredients of the Scene.
Do not think about how you would describe the scene. Become your character. See only what she sees. In other words, what the character sees is more important than what you as the writer want to describe.
What are her inner thoughts?
The emotion appears to be angry but what if, in the end, the emotion turns to grief and she breaks down and embraces her dead grandmother?
What if she blames her grandmother for something the old woman had not done?
What if she murdered her grandmother?
The What Ifs are endless. Open to taking risks with your writing!
