Welcome, friends! Come in, and let me tell you a Story A Day, all May long…
In June and July, I’ll be drafting two new Kifo Island novels. I know something about 5 of the 6 point of view characters, and I’ve got a sketchy idea of the plots – but I need to learn more about these people and their stories.
So, in May, I explore. Every day, I’ll follow the prompts in A Month of Writing Prompts 2016. I’ll play while moving through my planning efforts. Some of these stories may become part of the eventual novels, but my goal is to invite these characters to show me who they are and what they want – and how their lives fit together to make a novel.
Week One’s theme is Limits, and Day Three is a Drabble (100 word story). I managed exactly 100 words, sans title, and only edited for typos. I also used the guest prompt by Gabriela Periera: I used the last line of Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
