Like much of America, I’m tuned into the Inauguration. No matter who is being sworn in as our new president, I make a point to watch. I love the traditions, and yes, the fashion and looks that surround everything.
There’s also what I think is the author brain. What is this person thinking? What if that one did this gesture, or said this? What are they talking about at that tea, anyway?
I thought I’d invite you into my imagination. If you could write a story about the inauguration, what POV, point of view, would you want to write from?
-The outgoing president
-The incoming president
-The outgoing first lady
-The incoming first lady
-The outgoing vice-president
-The incoming vice-president
-A child of the outgoing president
-A child of the incoming president
-A former president attending the event
-A secret service agent on detail
-A member of the military involved
-A member of the media covering the event
-A citizen attending the event
-Someone else (Who?)
What would you write about? Would it be suspense? Romance? Thriller? I know some of you are already thinking horror, I see you.
My guess is not everyone thinks like this, but it’s a rainy day and I thought it would be fun to imagine.
