Trapped in Grief

Create a narrative in which a character is unable to move past a tragic event causing intense grief.

The prompt examines the gut-wrenchingly human experience of loss. Your character is trapped in a cycle of grief, unable to move on from a devastating event—be it the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or the loss of a dream. Viewers should witness the character’s battle with acceptance, their attempts to mask or suppress their pain, and their moments of vulnerability. The portrayal of grief and healing might make readers sympathize with the character, connecting with their pain and longing.
