Williamsburg Creative Writing Group

Prompts for the week of February 7th, 2013

This week we will work a little on character development. I will give you several people to choose from. Take one or more and develop them into characters in your short story. Remember to let your words tell us who they are.
Sixty year old woman
Man of any age with a slight limp
Teenager male or female
Married woman without children
Married woman with children
Their male counterparts
Single woman in her thirties
Ex: She was tall and dressed exquisitely. She has owned the company for many years and still commands respect each time she enters a room. Given her age it’s amazing to watch her walk across the floor on her six inch heels. Her perfectly quaffed hair doesn’t move and her alabaster skin only enhances her features. Mary Jane has just turned sixty and took over the company shortly after her parents were killed in a plane crash. She was only twenty then. Etc. etc.

Create a short story using these five words:
Dumpster, avenue, rocking chair, prescription, antelope
Have Fun!
