Triple F: Read This And…

How’s it going? Won’t bore you with a lot of details about my week, since a lot of it is the same, and there weren’t a lot of new developments (except for me getting one maxed skill in an online game that I play kind of a lot, which isn’t really having to do with this, at least not too, too much).

Anyway, let’s get to it.

Today is Triple F, aka Fabulous Fiction Friday, double-aka the prompt for you. Even though I’m a writer, I still love to read, so let’s turn that inspiration into this:

Your character reads a line in a book, and something happens depending on the type of book.

All right. Now you have to figure gender, backstory, and what-have-ya on your character (which would incidentally include the kinds of books they like to read), and you have to pick the books that this type of haywireness will happen during the character reading them. And you’d also have to figure out whether things change whether the book is fiction or nonfiction.

How about:

Nigel reads a book on cars and he’s transported to a garage somewhere? Where is he? What is he? Is he in the body of the lead mechanic? Out in the waiting room? Is he the 3/4 socket wrench in a greasy toolbox now? And why was it this particular shop? Is the owner Fae? Or maybe some kind of enchanter who can’t get workers in a busted economy, so he “borrows” them by enchanting his how-to books?

Or how about Marie reads a science-fiction book, and she gets the knowledge from it, only to realize that whatever the book is talking about isn’t really fiction? Well, that’d be interesting. What if she realizes, after she does read it, that nobody else should? Why would she think that? Is she being good or evil, and why?

That’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling down the hill.

August 2017 is edging close to half done.

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

Until next time (and week),



About Ty Mall

Thanks for stopping by. I've almost always been interested in writing, among other things. Along with discovering pop culture, I've uncovered a lot about the craft over the past 10 years. And whether you're a fiction writer or email copywriter, I'm here to pass on what I've found out. And have a ton of fun in the process.
