How’s your week been? Things are going well for me this week. I’m super close to finishing my book. After that, I’ll get things going up at Amazon. launch it, and get the word out.
I also wrote about a previous character of mine over this way. As these types of things go, I figured I’d use it as inspiration for this week’s writing prompt, a.k.a. Triple F.
So, this week’s prompt for Fabulous Fiction Friday is:
Your character comes to life and writes about you. What do they say?
Of course I had to reverse things, you know, to be me. Anyway, the gender, backstory, what-have-ya of this character will be up to you. And the setting. The plot we kinda already have–but just one point of it. Someone writing about someone else isn’t a plot on its own without why, how, and where.
Anyway, here we go:
What if my character Charlie wrote that I didn’t cast him in the right role for him? What would that mean for him and his life? A waste of talent? Being plagued by self-doubt? How would that affect him overall? What if instead of writing about me, we switched places, and I was the fictional character to him? Or he wrote a letter to me, and said, “Hey, you royally screwed up on this assignment, old boy”?
All right, there’s the normal people doing normal things.
How about Charlie writes me from a space station–what if he just hopped stories and didn’t get Jake offed at all? What could happen there?
Of course I have other characters–demon hunters, about 4 dozen alien races, scientists, normal people, a woman who’s trying to save her family in a dystopian-type society, and what-have-ya. I wonder what they’d all say about me. I wonder what it would be like to get them all in a room..
Well, that’s enough to get you started, and get the snowball rolling down the hill.
August is about over, and for 2016, it’ll be in the history books by next Thursday.
Make it a great weekend, with good memories, all right?
Until next time (and week),
