How’s it going? The weekend’s almost here, and so is October. But we still have a bit to squeeze out of September, though.
Let’s get to it.
Today is Triple F, which means a prompt for you as Fabulous Fiction Friday. Which also means I have to think about it. And something struck me, that at least in my own life, a lot of it is doing the same things over and over again.
Maybe you can relate?
Anyway, your prompt for this week is:
The same thing happens to your character two days in a row, but one detail is different.
All right–you’ll put in the backstory, gender, and what-have-ya. You’ll also have to pick out what the different detail is and why that matters to the rest of the story.
Let’s take Colin. He goes to work every day, but he has to catch the bus. If the bus is late, that impacts him, for sure. How late is the bus? Is the bus broken down? Is Colin in a small town with only three buses in the fleet? What if the bus is late because the driver is depressed, or some other serious issue? You could even tell the story from the driver’s perspective instead.
Or Lily. Maybe she is at work and realizes she forgot to lock the door on her apartment–but there’s almost nothing in there that anybody would want. And then she returns home to find…you’ll have to figure that one out. A stray dog, an ex-boyfriend, what-have-ya.
That’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling, I think.
September 2017 is just about in the history books–tomorrow is the last day. Monday will be October 2nd.
And make it a great weekend, with good memories, all right?
Until next time (and week and month),
