How’s your week been so far? I finished up with an email series for one client, and started off on Wednesday with a consult with another one who seemed really excited to work with me, which is nice. I’m hoping we can make him a lot of dough from working together.
Anyway, let’s get to it for today…which is Triple F, aka Fabulous Fiction Friday, which means a writing prompt for you. And I talked about the start of the new month and about writing being hard work (for some it’s hard to write, for others it’s more of a consistency thing).
Here we go:
For the first time in your character’s life, something hard has become easy…why?
(And I don’t mean having a character get thrown because a bolt they were struggling with suddenly comes loose).
All right, time to hop on the fiction train.
First you’ll have to figure out who your character is (gender, backstory, age, what they do for work, what-have-ya). Then you’ll have to put in there what they think is hard and why, followed up by how it got easy.
How about Ken thinks being a mechanic is hard because he’s just starting out? Is it after years of experience things change–or is he hit with a Peter and the Magic Thread type of situation?
Or maybe Carrie thinks that cooking is hard, and a male fairy on his way from harvesting fairy dust sneezes and spills some of it on her, and now she cooks like a champ. What could happen to her? Is the fairy dust time release? And what happens when it expires? What if Carrie has doubts she can’t get good on her own?
All right, that’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling down the hill, so to speak.
February is just getting underway, which is cool.
Make it an awesome weekend, with good memories, all right?
Until next time (and week),
