Triple F: Not What They Expected…

How’s your week been? Mine was more of the same this week, with writing and prospecting (and other things happened to me that weren’t the same, of course, that most likely will make it into a post sooner or later).

Let’s get to it.

Today is Triple F, and the prompt (or a prompt) for you. Things usually slip in from my life on these occasions, which I then fictionalize, and today is no exception.

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

Your character fills out a job application, only to realize the job they applied for isn’t where they’ll end up working, or what they’ll end up doing.

All right. No backstory, gender, or what-have-ya to speak of here. So you’ll have to come up with those, as well as the circumstances of this mistaken employment identity, so to speak. Maybe it was a spelling mistake or something else…

Something like:

Rachel applied for a job as a receptionist–only to discover they got creative with their wording, and now she’s doing arranging for rentals, flowers, and other things that deal with wedding receptions.

Or Fred applies for a job as a mechanic–only to discover he’s actually going to teach tall guys and girls who cover their faces all the time how to fix their machinery (even though the things look like something straight out of a science fiction movie, and they mostly point and grunt without speaking).

That’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling.

We’ve got about another week and a half of 2017.

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

Until next time (and week),

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.
