week 10: the spring carte blanche

11 Mar

This week, I’d like to give you the opportunity to revisit any past characters. You can visit the previous character prompts here.

You can create interaction with one or more previous characters, characters you’ve written or even characters other authors have written. You can even write from the perspective of a character that was peripheral to a previous story  written by you or anyone else.

My only specific challenge is that you have to mention something about spring (the season) in your story. (Spring doesn’t have to be a central theme but just an element of the story.)

You can submit a story until March 14th, 2010. I will publish all stories at 21:00 CET on that date and publish the character description for next week’s character on March 15th.

For information about how to take part, refer to the About and Participate pages.

If you would like to add create a prompt for our talented group of authors, please contact me at character AT icecreamisnicecream DOT com.

    I always find it so interesting how we often go in the same direction. This prompt gave us a lot of latitude yet four of us still ended up re-visiting Hammond or a few weeks ago when several of us connected Margaret and Alfred.

    I totally agree. I wonder if it has to do with stereotypes we all have? Or is it that we are building a common empathy partly influenced by the glimpses other people have created for the characters?
