How’s your week been so far? I’ve been jabbering about my client life over the last few posts (and trying to include fiction writerly stuff too, along with that, so I didn’t label these posts as Copywriting Codexes, i.e., copywriters-only stuff).
Anyway, let’s get to it for today. Because today is Fabulous Fiction Friday, we’ll have to have a prompt, of course, which may or may not be based on something that’s happened or is happening in my life (which is a prompt/fiction/copywriting pick-up all on its own).
(And by “pick up” I kinda mean the gaming term where the little character gets something for their very own by bumping into it).
All right, your prompt for Triple F this week is:
Your character misses an important conversation. But they end up getting the info anyway. If they didn’t “just remember,” how did they get the info they needed…if they didn’t ask anyone else for help?
I know it’s kinda based on what happened this week with the guy who friended me and sent me a PM about my own offer–a month ago. Oops. Well, what to do now with this fiction thing? Have fun, I’d say.
What if Bart is able to read indentations in walls where the conversation was held? And because divorce court was held up, he missed the meeting, but got the info anyway? What is this information about and who was he talking to? A big tech company? His new girlfriend? And how does he use this info that he’s got?
How about Shelly travels back in time to retrieve this info? Why would it be that important? Is she talking to her mom for one last time, who was the herald of the dusk of humanity because they got taken over by robot aliens? Is it that last conversation that can give Shelly what she needs to stop the intergalactic menace? How successful is she in her quest?
Okay, that’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling down the hill, so to speak.
January 2017 has about had it, to tell the truth (February pops its head in next Thursday).
Make it an awesome weekend, with good memories, all right?
Until next time (and week),
