How’s it going? Hope you’ve had a good week.
It’s Friday, and that means the weekly prompt, aka Triple F.
I got to thinking about what I posted about a friend of a friend of mine and movies over this way.
Which led me to the inspiration for today’s prompt with a slight twist.
Here you go:
Your character is offered the job of a lifetime, but there’s only one catch: there’s one of more aspects of that job the character has never done before. The manager’s offered to train, and the coworkers are solid. What happens?
Far be it from me to go the regular people/regular things route.
So I won’t.
Not a lot to work with–one plot point and the character’s feelings (or some of them) about the situation itself.
You’d have to pick the gender and background of the character, and the special job, too. Not to mention WHY the character thinks the job is so cool.
Maybe we have a brilliant female scientist who’s worked on a space station before–but never monitoring the training of genetic super-soldiers, who would be nothing like her fitness class she teaches part time on earth. She is rather sick of earth though, and humans have been orbiting in space like this for decades, and she wants to get in on the ground floor of the budding outer space civilization.
Or an alien who works well with technology who’s never worked on a space station before. He likes to be surrounded by atmosphere and beings of some type, not beeping machines and empty atmosphere. What if no one is going to be there with him? He really likes the idea of this gig though, because he’ll get access to special crystals and make history.
Or you could combine parts of both of the previous ideas.
Anyway, I think that’s enough to get you started.
It’s the end of the first full week of January. 2016 is steaming ahead down the track of this journey we call life.
Make it a great weekend, with good memories, all right?
Until next time (and week),
