I haven’t posted in several weeks. One thing after another happened in the month of June, but now The Starving Writer is Back!
To get us going I thought a writing exercise would be in order.
Character Building Exercise
Describe your characters favorite drink. Why is it their favorite? Does their favorite drink change when the seasons do or when they keep different company?
Have a great writing day.
Welcome to the first Friday in June. Start your month off right with some prompts to get your writing mojo flowing.
11.)Dear Diary, We have been lost at sea for nearly three months now. I fear for the crew’s sanity.
2.) Today started out like any other day but what happened was nothing like any other day.
3.) You are at the mini mart. The cashier gives you your change. On one of the bills are instructions to do something. What are the instructions and do you carry them out?
4.) Mom, I’ve decided to be a professional Dodge Baller.
5.) Mabel, the cat lady, is in your oak tree in the front yard trying to get one of her cats down, again.
Have fun with these prompts. Challenge yourself to write a short story for each.
Have a great day and keep on writing.
Character Writing Exercise
Your character has been stranded on an island after a ship wreck. He and one other person survived. They have been stranded for thirty days and there is only one day of food left. What does your character do?
This is a fun exercises and writing prompt really. You can take one of your existing characters and put them in this situation and see how they react. You can discover a lot about your character by putting them in a stressful situation. Also the other person can be male or female. How would your character act in those two different situations?
Have a great day and happy writing.
