A writing excercise: Write to your characters! - NaNoWriMo, spiced with Yaoi and Lemon

About A writing excercise: Write to your characters!

Previous Entry A writing excercise: Write to your characters! Nov. 15th, 2004 @ 11:33 pm Next Entry
Go ahead and try this. This is inspired by notetocharacter.  Just write to your character and complained at their incompetence or be in awe of them. Or you can have your characters write to you! Try it out and post it in this sleepy community! XD

Here's my example, I'll keep it small to two characters:

Dear Deimos,
Unlike your siblings, your cleverness outshines them! I mean seducing Alan to set you free from your prison and used a Yo-yo as your weapon of choice to defeat and whack your tormenter Ursula will have me laughing for a long time. I had to admit, you were meant to lighten the story's atmosphere with your comedic antics but you came out well-round because of your sincere feelings concerining Alan. Not bad for a clever Demon. X) Yo-yo's are unexpected weapons indeed besides Luan's huge Frying Pan of Doom.

Dear Mel,
It pains me to write you because you're a manifestation of my negative feelings towards life. Writing you is like writing me, I know it hurts when bullies make fun on how smart and gifted you are and then you get brutally beaten up for it. You're a nice boy but misunderstood. Don't worry, those bullies will pay and I'll make sure of that!

Love,
Your Goddess

Dear Jack,

Damn you, why did you take over the entire story x.x Cyrus is your best friend and supposed to be the main character, why/how/WHY?! did you just shove him out of the story like that?! And yet I continue loving you, because you are so easy to write fun to write and I love your love for Cody (this shounen ai love is also a reason you were allowed to take over so much, buster :P If Cyrus had been gay too I assure you it probably would have been a lot harder...). I can't wait for you to help Cody out, because he definitely needs it. And don't you dare ditch your best friend for him, he needs the help more than you might know, too. You're his best friend and he needs you, even after he gets Rachel to help him out as well.

Keep being your lovable self and don't ditch me here ^^ But please do let Cyrus and Rachel come into the story a bit more x.x

Dear Cody,

Jack loves you. Deal.

Dear Lyle,

You're probably one of my favorite characters and I have no clue why. You've hardly even been in it yet (one dream sequence and a few honorable mentions) and yet I keep thinking about the future scene of Cyrus and Rachel going to see you. I guess I just have something for crazy childlike/innocent-acting guys. And just make it clear already (to me anyway) of whether you are or are not in love with Cyrus x.x It's bugging me...

Love,
Kay

Hee, no problem, I like inspiring people! And I like this writing letters stuff to your characters, it's amusing.

Yes, it definitely is, I love this kind of thing too. I'm showing your exercise to a friend of mine who isn't in the group right now, and she's gonna do it too and show me. I'm kind of tempted to do character letters to myself, but maybe a little later when they are yelling at me more.

Ah, I want to get around having the characters writing to me too but I'll save that for another day. X)
