Write a scene where a character gets a promotion they don’t think they deserved. This could be screwing over a coworker to get the recognition from the boss, cheating on the last test before graduation, or just feeling inadequate or unprepared.
Zero in on character emotions – are they trying to rationalize it? Are they trying to convince themselves that they are ready for the experience? If achieved by devious means, how does the character view their actions?
Have fun, and enjoy!
