I dunno about you, but I consider Mondays to be wicked, evil things that, while necessary, are pure torture. Somewhat like mathematics. But I digress. I almost didn’t blog anything today, but I figured I needed to do something since I skipped yesterday. Then I had an idea… A lot of blogs have special stuff for certain days of the week. Q. and A. Day or Character Development Day or Free Flying Monkeys Day or whatever…Why not mine?
And since I’ve been coming across a lot of writing prompts lately, some good, some perfectly pathetic, that’s what I’ve got! A writing prompt every Monday, beginning today! We shall see if I’m any good at writing prompts.
Okay, so that’s not the only reason I came up with this. I dove into the wonderful, startling world of choir today, and discovered that it can be somewhat of a challenge for a perfectionist who can’t read a lick of music. Therefore I came home and practiced until I gave myself a singing-induced headache and was too tired to do any real, thought-provoking (if any of my stuff is) posts.
What does your main character think about in the shower?
(Would you like to guess where I brainstormed this brilliant idea?)
Well, considering that my novel takes place in the 19th century, showers weren’t exactly prevalent. But, while in the tub, my M.C.’s thoughts tend to differ, according to her mood. If she’s happy and everything has gone her way, she daydreams and slips away from her somewhat overcomplicated life to a much easier, less explosive one where no one is apt to attempt murder. If things haven’t quite gone her way, she sits there and broods, trying to figure out where she went wrong, how she could have done it differently, or possibly how to get revenge on the person currently making her life miserable.
