Questions to consider before writing this prompt: is this the first time your character has woken up in a prison cell? What caused the character’s blackout? Does your character know the other person in the room? What race and ethnicity does your character identify with? What does your character do for a living? When writing a believable story, it’s important to have a concrete understanding of who you’re writing about. Asking questions that don’t immediately appear obvious to ask will lend additional depth and richness to your scene.
