The court jester has gone mad. In the underground caves of the castle, he plots, talking to ghosts and imaginary allies. He wants to kill the king and conquer the queen’s heart. Write a scene in third person describing the inner struggle. Use first person dialogue and alternate between dialogue and internal monologue. Give your character a strong, unique voice. Have him look crazier as the scene goes on, and let the reader understand his escalating madness through his speech and thoughts. Interject some imaginary characters that only the mad jester can see.
(drama, dialogue, internal monologue)
