Triple F: I Made a Recording, and Then…

How’s it going? Today’s Friday, so that means Fabulous Fiction Friday, and a prompt for you.

I’ve been blogging about starting to shoot video/do Facebook livestreams (and I’ve actually done two of them). I’m starting to get more comfortable with it, but I don’t know if I’m quite there (and I’ll be looking into doing things like Youtube and Vimeo later on, for sure).

So, to mash all that up, as I usually do, here’s this week’s Triple F post, just for you:

Your character has a video camera, and catches a crime by accident. What happens now?

That’s about as close as I’ve come to regular people doing regular things in a while. You’ll have to figure out things like gender, backstory, and what-have-ya. There’s even world-building things you can do here, depending on the story itself. Something like:

Lori catches someone breaking into the store across the street. Okay, is she afraid? Maybe. But what is she afraid of? Is she afraid that someone will find out what she’s done and come after her? Or is it that recording anything, anywhere is illegal in the society Lori’s in right now, and she’s afraid of being punished for it? Or both?

Or maybe catches a mugging on camera, and goes out to confront the people involved. But after he gets knocked over the head and wakes up, he’s nowhere near where he started. Did he get knocked back in time, or is it just a hallucination brought on by head trauma?

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

April’s almost out of here, actually. May 1st, 2017 is next Monday.

Make it a great weekend with good memories, all right?

Until next time (and week, and month),
