#Write30 – Character’s Listicles

      Comments Off on #Write30 – Character’s Listicles
This is a Write30 prompt. That means you read the prompt, ponder for a minute or two and then get down to writing. See where it takes you.

This is another list exercise. 6 prompts, 4 min each. But this time write from the POV of your characters. Choose any character from your current WIP (or from a new idea) and respond to these prompts.

Make sure the lists you create relate to the plot, the emotion and how you can link them to the flow of the story. Try writing them as dialogue where they punctuate each item in the list with a qualifying phrase (to show their voice and attitude).

  • Your character has to choose a topic for a school essay or PHD essay (depending on how old they are), create a list of topics that they could choose from.
  • A list of places your character would like to visit.
  • A list of dreams your character has had during a crucial moment in the plot – each dream can be for a different plot point.
  • List five things your character is passionate about – from climate change to not wearing makeup – it literally can be anything.
  • If your character ran for office (from class president to council elections, pick whatever is appropriate), what election promises will they make?
  • List five ways in which your character might apologize at various points in the story – it could be a genuine apology, it could be a simple one as bumping into someone or a passive aggressive one. Show as dialogue.
