Are Our Characters Really Human?

As authors we have characters that do amazing things, we have characters that don’t do anything all. We have characters that are total fluff and mean nothing to the plot and are forgotten within 5 pages.

But these characters that we create, are they really human?

Do your characters use the bathroom ever?

Do your characters eat three meals a day?

Do your characters shower daily or weekly or ever?

Do your characters go by a normal week?

Do you keep track of day of the week for extra detail?

Do your characters change clothes every day?

There are so many things that are so small of a detail, but at the same time they seem so big. If I was to include the shower every morning that my character had would people get annoyed? If I told you the outfit each day that the character changed into would you care? Do you think it’s weird that my characters are on a journey and I haven’t mentioned once how they are bathing or using the bathroom?

Of course, yes if you’re characters are human then they do these things, but is it necessary to include alllll of these details? I guess not.

Bad or Good Witch? #prompt 6

Prompt #6: Are you a good or bad witch?

I would chose to be a good witch. The thing about being a good witch is that you are fighting to have peace and for everyone to be happy in the world. I could be a totally good witch if the world I was in was always good, but I think that I would have to make some decisions that could be taken as bad. Like having to hurt someone because they are bad or changing someone’s thoughts to be good. Who says I have to right to do such things so does that make me bad or good. If I have the best at heart does that mean it’s good? If I had to kill a rabbit for a spell would peta hate me even if this would make everything in the world better and fair? I think it would be harder to be a good witch, but I would try.

A Snail’s Journey Up A Tree: Prompt #4

Prompt #4: A Snail’s journey up a tree

The snail is on this journey up the tree because it is a challenge to prove you are an amazing snail. At the top of the tree is some kind of fruit or special leaf that only grows up there. The snail must grab it and come back down to show everyone. On his journey he meets a bird, weather, other bugs and other things that happen on trees. Probably a kids story that wouldn’t be so long because I’m running out of details to put in here. LOL

 

Of course if you have a better answer to this prompt share with me.

Daily Writing Prompt No. 1

Prompt: You can speak to fish.

The main character is a guy who is a lifeguard for a beach. He is a typical surfer guy with sun died blonde hair, perfect tan, and muscles.

He wakes up one morning in the lifeguard shack as he always does. He is half awake stumbling around getting dressed and fixing something to eat. Then, he comes to his fish tank where he feeds his fish. Then, the fish starts to talk, “I hate these stupid dry flakes you give me.” The fish has an attitude, if you hadn’t noticed. The lifeguard can hear the fish and he’s looking around like did you just speak to me? The fish can’t believe that the guy can understand him. The fish is just like, “This guy is going crazy.” The guy starts having a conversation with the fish asking how this happened and how can he understand the fish. The lifeguard is freaking out trying to pinch himself and sticks his hand in the grease of the bacon that he was making for breakfast when he realizes that this is real. As he is trying to figure out what’s happening there’s a siren about a shark being in the water. He goes out to search and make sure the water is clear. When he gets out in the water he and the shark start having a conversation, but the people in the shore think that he is being attacked. His lifeguard buddy comes jumping into the water to get him out. The guy starts getting really angry because he was in the middle of a conversation and his buddy is confused because he thinks he saw his friend trying to talk to the shark. The guy tells his buddy to leave him alone. The guy goes back to his shack where he and his fish start talking and because he’s breakfast is ruined and his buddy is here he decides to take the fish in a cup with him to a diner on the boardwalk. He is trying to talk to the fish while people stare at him to figure out why he can talk to fish and why he can talk to them now.
