Triple F: The Longer You Wait, the Better It Is?

How’s your week been so far? I’ve been busy learning about more and more different types of online businesses that are out there, and trying to figure out which ones to move toward (doing my best to concentrate on one at a time).

Anyway, let’s get to it for today.

For those of you who showed up just today, it’s Triple F, which means a fiction prompt for all of you to tackle if you want to.

Your prompt for this week’s Fabulous Fiction Friday is:

The longer your character waits, the better or more profitable what they’re waiting for becomes.

What happens now? Well, you’ll have to determine what the opportunity/thing being waited for is, who your character is, and why you’d want to have them wait in the first place. This is also why this was fiction–waiting can be good, but too much waiting can be more like procrastination or maybe fear.

All right, what could we do here?

A man is waiting for an investment to mature–I kinda went with the obvious “good” scenario on that one. How about we add a twist? What if our man realized that for every month he waits, three months of his life is lost? Did he make a deal with someone? Who and why? And when are they coming to collect?

Or how about a woman shopping in a store? Carrie’s looking for sales, and she figures out that the longer something is in her cart, the cheaper it becomes. She knows she can’t wait forever, but what could she do to take advantage of this? Wait til she can’t stand it, and then buy? Or turn it into a business so that she earns the difference from what other people would have paid? And why does Carrie have this power in the first place?

All right, that’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling down the hill.

December 2016 is about one week away from being in the history books, and then it’s (I won’t say it–just enjoy this weekend, and make it awesome, with good memories, all right?)

Until next time (and week),
