Writing Sprints Three – May Theme “What is Reality”

As promised, I bring you another writing sprint.

Interview your favorite character in the story

Ask them the following questions:

1. Does it take much to get you angry? Or – What would frost you enough to start a fight with someone?
2. What is your first thought when you see a rainbow?
3. Do you enjoy a good mystery?
4. Name something you would really like, but would never buy for yourself.
5. You are standing at a fork in the road. If you turn left the road leads home. What is waiting for you down that other road? Will you turn left or right? 

These questions are intended to help you consider your character from a perspective outside of the story. However, if they suit the story or plot – go with it. If you missed the sprints last weekend, you can find them here and here.

Use only as directed:

This game is open to the whole community, not just those who signed up to write for May’s theme. For those who are working on their month-long story, the content of your resulting sprint DOES NOT need to be included in your final story. It is an exercise for you, not a requirement.

If you want to share what you wrote in the sprint, paste a link in the comments below. Sharing is also not required.

If you write something today and want to share it with us we’ll read it, and share some #commentlove as the reader sees fit. There is no voting for this exercise.

Typically a sprint would be timed, but since we are scattered across time zones and have work and families to attend to the only limitation I will give you is this – the time to share your sprint results with us will end Sunday night at midnight (wherever you are).

Our flamestorming session is tentatively set for Sunday around 4pm EDT for a few hours. We will be using Google Hangouts.

You can find us at the address below, send us an email anytime Sunday and we will add you to our Hangouts Contacts. If you are protective of your gMail address or do not have one, consider setting up a free gMail account to use strictly for flamestorming in privacy. You must have a gmail or Google + account to use Hangouts.

Brigit’s Flame – flamestorming.tng@gmail.com

It’s simple to use, just open gMail or Google + and choose Hangouts. I will include you on the initial group message and you can join at your leisure.

#lightAfire under your muse
Happy writing.


About t.s.wright

Writer, reader, casual photographer, nature-lover, dog mom. I grew up in a tree, inside a book, whispering possible futures into discarded seed pods that curled up and exploded each summer. One day, they cut down my tree and I was forced to go to school while waiting for the replacement trees to grow strong enough to hold me. But while we waited, I grew too heavy and awkward to climb, so I had to get a job. I spent my days surrounded by flimsy walls covered in carpet that made boxes and people who forgot to look out windows. I worked really hard. Possibilities were replaced with formulas and exactitude. Eventually I forgot how to climb a tree...and how to smile. Then one day, a dog licked my foot excessively and I remembered smiling. That reminded me of more things that didn't cost money and couldn't be tallied in a spreadsheet - like hugs and love and being happy. So I found myself a Steve who reminded me what home was. Then we filled it and our hearts with dogs. Eventually we planted our own tree, together. Even though I'm happy right here, right now, I remembered that we all need possibilities to dream of, so I've started writing them down.
