Dear Procrastinators and Friends!
‘One can learn a lot from one’s characters’, my writing friend Terveen Gill replied recently to one of my comments.
Her remark made me think: What have I ever learned from a character I invented. There are quite a few rather weird souls I have created. I guess, some have taught me a lesson and I’m quite curious if you had a similar experience.
Teaching can go both ways. If you can’t be a good example, you’ve got to be a terrible warning… So I wonder: did one of the characters you invented perhaps make a mistake ‘for’ you?
Please share your experiences in the comment box below. Perhaps, my question will inspire a new piece of writing? I would really like to know how you and your characters get on!
The Procrastinators post new creative writing prompts on our blog every Wednesday and Sunday. Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your writing.
