Prompt #20

Still with me? Feel free to go at your own pace - obviously, writers aren't likely to let anyone else tell them what to do. Let me know if you need any help or if you have any other kind of feedback.

Today's prompt is a double free write - pick your favorite argument of choice. There seem to be plenty of those these days - Republican vs. Democrat, Vegetarian vs. Carnivore, Technology vs. Simplicity, Hipster vs. The World - and take some time to free write from the side with which you more closely identify. If you feel as though a timer would help, you may set one. Otherwise, just keep writing until you feel satisfied that you've covered your argument thoroughly.

Ready for step two? Put on your diplomatic pants and begin writing from the other perspective. Be nice. Try to understand why they argue the way they do. Write for as long as you can. Was that so hard?
