Deb, my friend and also my critique partner, and I decided we needed a girlfriend night out last night. We planned this for two weeks and something always got in the way. So finally we managed to go to a movie last night. We wanted to see ‘Hereafter,’ but rush hour traffic delayed Deb’s arrival at my house so we went to a theatre that was closer and they weren’t showing ‘Hereafter.’ We went to ‘Due Date.’
While Deb laughed I found myself trying to appreciate the antics of the insane character, sorry, I don’t remember the guys name. The character was Ethan. This is not my cup of tea, nor is it coffee with liquor in it. Or any other drink you can imagine.
So in honor of going to a stupid movie and having to change your plans continuously I give you the Hump Day Challenge. Write a character in one, two or more sentences that is faced with a change of plans. You can make it silly or serious. I give you creative license. I will post my sentences around 6 p.m. Pacific time.
