Greetings, fellow community members! Welcome to another edition of our weekly questions and prompts! I hope you have a wonderful start to your week, now that Summer is kicking into gear. This week, we'll be exploring the topic of feelings and emotions in a character and how they experience them. Each character can handle emotions differently, some may even suppress them more than others. This week's prompt is:

Write about your character experiencing stress or anxiety.

It's very simple to just write that our character feels stressed, and there's nothing wrong with that! But for the purposes of this exercise, let's focus on how our character reacts, behaves or handles their stress. Do they manage to keep calm in a very tense situation, or are they guilty of panicking and snapping due to high amounts of stress? Does your character have a particular way to handle stress, like walking or drawing? Write your responses in the comments below!
