How was your week? Mine was filled with, well, work. Which is okay–I’m grieving and moving ahead since last Friday’s passing of my great-uncle Jerry (who you can check out over here).
In a nod to him, your Triple F/Fabulous Fiction Friday prompt for this week is:
Your character is teaching someone something they’ve never done before, and they mess up. What happens?
A whole lot of interesting–my great-uncle taught me a lot just by talking, about how to relate to people–and being hilarious never hurt anyone. He’s part of a generation I love to hang out with when I can–folks in their 70s and 80s who have a ton of stories to tell about an era gone by.
Okay, back on track. Except for one plot event, basically, everything is up to you here.
You could have someone tie their shoes, and get them in a big tangle.
Or have someone throw a baseball to someone learning hitting, and they miss it five times in a row.
What happens? Comfort? Frustration? That’s when someone puts a hand on your shoulder, tells you to calm down, take it all in, and give it another shot, right? Usually, sure.
Or how about taking the controls of a spaceship on the yearly family outing? Where’s the family, and where and why are they going someplace?
All right, that’s enough to get you started.
We’re one week into April of 2016.
Make it a great weekend, with good memories, all right?
Until next time,
