I recently wrote a flash fiction piece using a prompt about writing a character on a merry-go-round. Well, I used that prompt, and I ended up with a character on a bad first date that involved a merry-go-round.
My challenge is this. Write a character either male or female going on a first date. It can be a teenager, adult, divorcee, etc. Is it a good or bad date? What happens? This will show how your characters handle certain situations. You can even take characters in a novel or short story that you’re writing and define them by how they handle this situation.
How do you define your characters? Are there certain situations you put them through, or do you just write with them and see how it goes?
