Time to Write: Introductions

Last week’s prompt was a Sentence Starter: “I awoke to the sound of…”

Nandini wrote a modified piece of the prompt at her blog, Pages That Rustle.

Thanks Nandini!

This week’s prompt is…

Time to write writing prompt introductions

Introduce a brand new character as though you’re beginning a new novel. We don’t need to know any plot or premise of the story, just introduce the main character.

Give us enough background to make us want to follow the character, even if we don’t know what the story is about. But don’t reveal everything all at once. Keep us wondering about this character.

Feel free to post your story in the comments below. I’d love to see what you come up with. In addition, I’ll post your story and a link to your blog for next week’s Time to Write prompt.

Happy writing!

  1. I should be thanking you for the prompt, actually. Everyone needs a little nudge once in a while to get their creative juices flowing and I really admire how you come up with such good ones consistently every week.
    I will try to include this one in my series this time as well. 🙂

Let me know what you think!
