Time To Write: Show Your Character’s Biggest Flaw

Last week’s prompt was Show Your Character’s Biggest Fear.

Nthato wrote a wonderful piece over at his blog, A-Scribe To Describe.

Thanks, Nthato!

This week’s prompt is:

Everyone has flaws whether they like to admit it or not. Sometimes we don’t even know we have a certain flaw until someone points it out to you.

What’s your main character’s biggest flaw? Do they know about it? Are they okay with it?

Feel free to post your story in the comments below. I’d love to see what you come up with. If you respond by Thursday, August 18, I’ll post your story and a link to your blog for next week’s Time to Write prompt.

Happy writing!

Time To Write: Strange Hobby

Write about your main character doing a strange hobby they have. Or maybe they’re trying to explain their hobby to someone or someone else is witnessing them doing it. Or your protagonist is witnessing someone else do something strange.

Think outside the box. Don’t give your character the hobby of playing video games or something, have them collect the buttons that pop off their shirt even though they don’t know how to sew. Think of something out of the ordinary.

Time To Write: Photograph

This week’s prompt is photograph.

Is there a certain photo in a frame in your main character’s living room that means a lot to them? Maybe they find a picture of someone else in their home and questions the people in the photo.

Maybe your protagonist works at a store that prints pictures and they get an odd order.

Or, if you like, picture a picture in real life and retell that’s story.
