How’s it going? Got a bit of early yardwork to attend to, so I’ll be making this quick.
Today is Triple F here, which means a prompt for you, that you can use the examples from, or mix around any way you want to.
For this week, that’s:
Your character’s mood changes with the weather. Why does this happen?
With some people this does happen, and it’s not a happy place to be in. Since this is fiction, I want you to come up with another reason.
Of course, the backstory, character, gender, and what-have-ya is up to you, including the “how” of this mood change.
Chloe wonders why she’s so moody when it’s cloudy out. It never happened to her before her mom died, and she can’t figure anything out. She makes a visit to her dying aunt, who sees her fidgeting because it’s raining outside. And then she says, “You’re the one who got Regina’s ring, aren’t you?” (This is actually interesting–I might have to take it myself and make a story or three out of it).
Or Robbie can’t figure out why he’s so happy on sunny days–meaning it’s-never-going-to-be-a-better-day-than-this happy. His coworkers liked it at first, but then they just can’t stand him for some reason or other. That’s when he figures out he’s actually a genetic experiment made by a race of robotic aliens from a faraway galaxy who wanted to test how happy humans could become before everyone around them got sick to their stomachs.
That’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling down the hill, I figure.
The last week of August 2017 is next week.
Make it a great weekend, with good memories, all right?
Until next time (and week),
