Triple F: It’s Not Ideal, but Do It Anyway…

How’s your week been so far? My internet’s been a little wonky, so I’ll make this quick (and use it for inspiration, too).

For some reason the speed is way down on it, but there are some things I can still do–kinda slowly.

So for today’s Fabulous Fiction Friday prompt, you have:

A character is in an unfavorable situation, but they do something anyway.

Wide open, I know. You’ll have to pop gender in there, all the backstory, as well as what’s being done, why the situation’s unfavorable, and what-have-ya.

Something like:

Carlos is having a problem with his back, and has to go to work because he has to pay rent at the end of the month. What if he collapses when he’s on the job, and gets hospitalized? What if “rent” means seconds off your life for every moment you’re not at work, because of overcrowding, disease, or other problems future humanity has gotten itself into, in the fictional sense, at least?

Or how about Jenny is worried about having to confront her boyfriend about some strange texts that don’t seem to be from his mom or sister, discussing a meeting at a place she’s never heard of. Is she just paranoid? Is he a cheater? Or is he paying off his debt to a mobster, because he’s really from the future? And if he is, how would she eventually find that out? Another angle…did he leave his phone out for her because he was itching to come clean and couldn’t think of any other way?

That’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling.

This is the last full week of May 2017, too.

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

Until next time (and week),
