It’s often fun to go places we’ve never been and do things we’ve never done, but not always.
Imagine what would happen, how you’d feel, if your plans fell apart and suddenly, without warning, you find yourself in the midst of an unexpected adventure.
What would you do? How would you feel? What things might you say? Who would you contact?
Your task is to either choose a character that you have already written or create a new character. Place the character in scene. At first everything goes smoothly, but then something happens that changes everything. Your character finds himself in a new situation, one not of his choosing.
As you write, remember to include sights, sounds, reactions. Does he go along with the change or fight against it? Does he enjoy the new experience or lament that he is not where he intended to be?
As the story proceeds, what happens? Does the character embark on this journey or fight her way back to the original plans?
You’ve got a lot to think about here.
Have fun with this one.
