Writing Prompt: Superpowers

Tonight, I want to keep things light and fun. I want you to create a character that has a superpower they can’t control. Think outside the box and drift away from the superpowers you see every day.

For example, what if you had a character that could speak every language in the world, but never when they wanted to? How does your character deal with their rouge superpower? Do their friends and family know they have one? Or are they trying to hide it? Did they get it from their parents? How do they eventually control it?

Write a scene with a beginning, middle, and an end. Give your character an arc, character traits, backstory, the works. Show the reader how they struggle with their power and how they learn to control it.

Have fun and happy writing!
