Reminiscing about a character

28 Aug

Hello beautiful readers!

I hope this finds you all well. I really miss being on here but I have nothing to really write about…well that’s not true, I have plenty of ideas, but just a block from anything more than that. I fear that this is almost a journal lately and that’s not what I want this to be. However, if I don’t write anything at all, I get this annoying pressure and nagging in my head. I have a desperate need to write, even if I can’t think of much to write about. I was thinking about maybe looking up some random prompts and going from there. One of the best short stories I’ve ever written ended up coming about from a prompt. 🙂 It was my sophomore year in high school and my English teacher wanted us to create and really develop a character to use for our stories. We had to come up with a whole list of things, apart from the character physical attributes we had to come up with quite a history and past for them. She wanted us to know them so well, that we would know how they would act in certain situations. So, after creating our character, she had us pick several short prompts and write how our characters would react in each situation. I recall having to do about 5 of these. I wish I could find them, they were really quite interesting. Anyway, after all that I developed quite an interesting story that I’m still hoping to rewrite and improve. 🙂 Turns out, my little sister has this same teacher now in her senior year…and the teacher still remembers me and the story that came from these activities. ^.^ Haha, it surprised me and made me feel really good as this was about 7 years ago! Writing this on here has actually given me some ideas. Maybe I will create a new character and use the prompts…or go back to my old  character and derive something from that.

I hope you all have a wonderful day. Sorry for the rambling. :3

Do any of you have a favorite character that you created? If so, please tell me about them in a comment. 😀
