One of the nice things about being a writer is the ability to test drive the lives of other people. Fictional characters can be anything you want them to be. Or better still, they can be anything YOU want to be, at least for this afternoon. For this weekend, your writing assignment is to come up with a list of dream jobs a character of your creation could hold. Animator at Pixar? Forest ranger? Disney princess? Vampire hunter extraordinaire? The only limit is your imagination. Explore as many of them as you like and sketch out the details. What kind of salary does the character make? Special perks of the job? Drawbacks? Don’t be surprised if, sometime during this exercise, you find yourself itching to write about this new character. If that happens, go with the flow! Happy Writing!
