Triple F: New What Now?

How’s your week been so far? Mine’s been interesting (and I’m not saying that because I’m at a loss about what to say about it–not entirely anyway).

Today is Friday, which means Triple F and a prompt for you. I jabbered on and on about the beginnings and ends of months, so I won’t hit that point again today.

Your prompt for this week’s Fabulous Fiction Friday is:

Something is new in your character’s life. What is it and how does it impact them?

All right–we have a teeny plot point. No character, gender, backstory, or what-have-ya. You’ll have to throw that in there, as well as this “new” thing.

We could have:

A girl named Sandra who gets a puppy or a kitty for a college going away present (because she’s going to be a vet student, and her parents called in some favors about it–or maybe the thing’s stuffed). Maybe it reminds her of happier times, which makes going 3,000 miles away to another coast for school a little more bearable.

Or maybe Miles has a new car, and doesn’t have to worry so much about repairs–especially since his brother got it for him and offered to fix it because he knows Miles is going through school while working full-time.

We could also have a dedicated full-time student named Miles who marries an aspiring vet named Sandra–so they can both be the “new” in each other’s lives as they start a new one together.

And then we can throw in visitors from elsewhere, or a cataclysmic invasion of talking goats (sorry, I couldn’t go the “normal people, normal things” route the whole way–I tried, but the SF/F writer in me wasn’t having it).

That’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling down the hill, I’m figuring.

December 2017 is just underway. Go far with it.

And make it a great weekend, with good memories, all right?

Until next time (and week),
