Before I say anything, I’d like to say that I’m a fan of the profound, out-of-the-box things that exist in the world sometimes. Why? Because they’re funny. They lighten the mood. They remind you that the world has its upsides even in the midst of the worst events.
So, in the spirit of the absurd, your prompt is to write a story about a character who has a weird sidekick. The weirder the better. Or you can slip such a sidekick into your current WIP even!
What kind of wacky sidekicks am I talking about?
Maybe your MC had some trauma growing up and they got through it by talking to a Teddy Bear. Perhaps they still talk to said bear all these years later, even if they’re in the middle of a war/apocalypse. Or, maybe they’ve got a plant that they bring LITERALLY everywhere. Or perhaps a goldfish. Maybe a sad little robot that seldom works properly.
Whatever you end up burdening your MC with, I’d love to see it! 🙂
This writing prompt is free to use however you want. I’d love to have it up on InklingsFiction.com too! 😃
