Yeah, I've been having the same problem. I have a long story I want to write, but there's one bit toward the beginning that I just can't. figure. out. It's driving me insane because I have so many ideas for the rest of it.

Write everything but the beginning, then read it backwards. If you don't go mad and summon forth the Elder Gods, you may just have a way to start your story.

I for one have three tiny 'scenes' of an 'incident' that I'd like to write at some point. The only thing stopping me is that I've not got the intervening scenes imagined yet. I do, however, have a variation on the line 'Is that a lightsabre in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?' :P I'm a terrible person.

You can post it here if you want! I'm laid-back.

This week I've been working a ton, which meant I got a lot of ideas for prompts (they always seem to come to me when I'm working...) so I'm going to post two. Do one or both, it's up to you.

Week of 6/15/12

Confessions - Everybody has things they don't like to admit. Sometimes it's big, sometimes it's just something small. Sometimes it's nice to finally let it out. What does your character need to admit - and to who?

Hidden Talents - All of our characters are good fighters, but people are good at more than one thing. What else are they good at - and how do their friends and family react to learning about this hidden skill?

Archive is up!

Does it have to be our character's confession? Or can it be one of the companions? I've had an idea kicking around that would fit if so

Feel free to do whatever you want! I just write the descriptions as a jumping off point. The only "rule" is that it of course has to be about SWTOR...obviously.

Confessions:

Spoiler


My assassin, Benedicta, speaks to her mother during lunch. Sylvia here is Lord Vizloch from my other stories, just in case you were(n't) wondering.

This was the first thing that came to mind when I read the prompt. I kept it so short because I felt that adding anything would detract from what is the most memorable part of the conversation.
