How has your week been so far? I’ve been writing emails for clients, blogging, and some other things too. And last week, good friends of mine showed me how to turn off the track pad on my laptop, so I don’t have the screen going black when my sleeve or hand nudges the pad, like it did before.
Anyway, let’s get to it.
With all this jazz over the past week about “said” and inappropriate winter clothes for summer-ish weather, I figured I’d combine those for Triple F.
Your prompt for Fabulous Fiction Friday this week is:
Every time your character wears weather-inappropriate clothes, something hilarious happens…and things intensify if the character says “said.”
Of course that means you’ll have to determine “hilarious,” the character’s gender and backstory, what “weather-inappropriate” means, and what-have-ya (and yes, I do know people who can and do wear shorts in the wintertime when it’s actually cold outside, but I ain’t one of them).
What if every time Candace wears open-toed sandals in the winter, she’s chased by clowns who are blowing party favors? Why? Does the blowing noise intensify when she says the word “said”? What does she do as a result? Does she like clowns? Why don’t they just walk after her? What if they follow her to a place where she’s having a big job interview–and everyone else can see she brought clowns?
Or if Devon is in a blizzard, and he’s wearing a ball cap instead of a better hat? What if a bunch of first-graders appear out of nowhere and throw their winter hats at him, yelling that he needs to keep warm? What if it’s an avalanche of hats? If he takes the hint, will they stop? What if, when he says “said,” they throw more hats?
And where did the first graders come from, anyway?
All right, that’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling down the hill.
This is the end…of the last full week of February 2017. March 1st is next Wednesday, I think.
Make it an awesome weekend, with good memories, all right?
Until next time (and week),
