The Point Of Punishment

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

A Monster Calls is a bit darker than this trailer feels. There are multiple points in the movie where the child asks if he’s going to be punished and gets the answer “I can’t see the point in that.” And as you watch the movie you understand it for his situation. But it has me thinking about the point of punishment in general. We live in a system as adults that isn’t equally fair when it comes to punishment. Men and Women serve different times for the same crime. And likewise different races are punished differently for the same crimes. Think about punishment within the world you’re writing. Write a scene that shows whether or not the system is fair.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
