Inventive Writing Prompt Round-up #39

Here's the latest collection of prompts from my Tumblr.  Enjoy!

#267  It’s a beautiful, warm evening, what’s your character’s pleasure: dinner al fresco; a hike; taking the children to the park; ignoring the weather and turning on the TV or something else entirely?

#268  Is your main character a talker or a listener?

#269 And then, once the bill had been totaled and she had paid, the guilt set in.

#270  Happy Earth Day! Does your main character recycle? Drive a non-polluting car or take mass transit?  Or maybe he is just the opposite–throws trash in the recycling bucket and roars around town in a Hummer? Whichever the case, write about their green, or not-so-green habits.

#271 Write about your, or your character’s first kiss.

#272 What’s the worst thing your character has ever done? Murder, adultery, theft? Does the world know about this thing or does your character keep it secret? 

#273  What is the best thing your character has ever done? Raise a child up right, write a book, run a business, take care of an ailing parent, what?  

 How's your writing going?  And, as always, if you get inspired by one of these prompts and want to share in the comments, feel free.

    #268 Listener. He loves it when someone just goes off, talks about something deep in their core. He wants to know what they feel, what motivates them, the edges they sometimes visit. With the bits and pieces they give him, he hopes to piece together a schematic of his own soul.

    #273….resonates with me more than my character. So if I may share the spotlight…
    I think my kids have done pretty stellar so far…(17&21yo) my biggest dream is to write a book (which is why I hang out here)….I have lots of ideas for my own business. (Again- it’s just DOING it)…..and my mom- I now have time to dedicate to her and help her as her eyesight begins to deteriorate.

    funny how my main character is so different from me.
    No children (reason marriage fell apart)
    She never writes. But loves art.
    She helps run a business that is not hers.
    I haven’t given a thought about where her parents are….

    I guess I have work to do:)

    Sorry to hear about your Mom, but how wonderful that you now have time to take care of her.  I am sure she appreciates it.  And now that your kids are doing so well, it is time to devote to the book!  Yay!
