I’m thinking of writing some short stories, based around one character. I haven’t written any fiction since school, so I don’t really know how to start, but I made some notes today.
Obviously I don’t want to give away any details about my stories yet. I haven’t even decided if I will share what I write. It’s really just an exercise to try to help me cope with my son’s leukaemia.
Anyway, what about if you tell me a story about the sort of main character you would have if you wrote a book? I’ve come up with some questions to get you started. You don’t have to answer them all, just one or two. I know all about my character, so I won’t be stealing your ideas!
• what’s your character’s name?
• how old are they?
• where do they live?
• do they have a partner?
• who is your character’s best friend?
• favourite colour?
• do they have a hobby?
• what’s their dress style?
• is your character based on anyone you know?
I really do hope you can play along, or that I can inspire you to write your own story. Let’s have a conversation in the comments! ✍️
