Emotional Day Writing Prompt

Create a character who experiences a range of emotions throughout the day. From the moment they wake up until bedtime, their feelings change, just like the colours of a chameleon. Write a recount of your character’s day, detailing the various emotions they experience. For example, they may start with the fiery red of frustration during a math test but end the day in a calm, serene green as they enjoy a peaceful evening with family.
