Preptober Prompts Day 2

Preptober Prompts Day 2

In case you missed the Preptober Prompts intro and yesterday’s prompt.

What is your main character’s favorite fall activity?

Coraline loves apple-picking. She loves apples, as mentioned in the previous prompt, and she enjoys being outdoors and hanging out with people she cares about (or hanging out by herself). She finds the crisp air refreshing, and the company more so.

Preptober Prompts Day 1

Preptober Prompts Day 1

Preptober Prompts is finally here! Before we start there are a few things I want to go over to make sure things go smoothly, but I’ll only go over these once so you’re not reading them every day, lol.

  • It’s totally okay to use Preptober Prompts all on your own. I know I’ll be emphasizing the social aspect of things, but if you don’t want to share, that’s fine. One of my goals with this is for writers to connect with and support one another, but the main goal is to get your creative juices flowing and get you prepped for NaNo, so if sharing isn’t your thing that’s totally fine.
  • If you share Preptober Prompts on your own blog or social media, please link back to the original post and add the link to your post at the bottom of this post.
  • If you’re using Twitter, you can tag me (@R_M_Archer) instead of linking back, and don’t forget to use #PreptoberPrompts.
  • Subscribe to the other hosting blogs (Of Rainy Days and Stardust Veins, Ozark Mountain Cailins, and Wildflowers and Cosmic Tea) so you’ll be immediately notified when the prompts go up for weeks 2-4!
  • You can find all of the prompt images here.

Character Introduction

This week’s category is characters, so take a minute today to briefly introduce your character before diving into the prompt. Coraline Seralen is the king’s Paladin, which means she’s extremely powerful and carries an enormous responsibility to protect her king and country. It’s a burden she doesn’t really want. She’d rather be a healer, helping and protecting people through medicine, since it’s more physical and manageable. Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Day 1”

Character Interview: Kaitlyn Walker

Character Interview: Kaitlyn Walker

I’m sorry this is going up later than usual. I’ve been off my game with almost everything this week. :P Things should smooth back out next week, and I have a fun announcement set to go up next Tuesday!

Kaitlyn is another The Shades and the Elect character, a friend of Madi and Braedyn‘s, and she’s simultaneously fun and terrifying. (At least in RPs.) She’s a daredevil, practically fearless, and loves bringing her friends on her adventures. She’s also fiercely competitive and will about kill you in soccer. Enjoy her interview. :) Continue reading “Character Interview: Kaitlyn Walker”

Character Interview: Braedyn Carter

Character Interview: Braedyn Carter

Braedyn is a character from The Shades and the Elect, like Madi from last week, and another RP favorite. He’s sweet, loyal, and protective. He’s a mechanic on cars, the rare airship (as in: he built the only one in existence as of SATE), and watches. He adores building and repairing watches. He’s also one of those people who’s good at just about everything, so in addition to being a mechanic he also plays a handful of sports and at two musical instruments. (Where he gets the time, I don’t know. But I can tell you for sure that such people do exist, so it’s not… quite as unrealistic as it sounds. XD)

He’s one of my favorite characters of my own, and I hope you enjoy meeting him. :) Continue reading “Character Interview: Braedyn Carter”

Character Interview: Madison Thompson

Character Interview: Madison Thompson

Madison is the main character of my novel The Shades and the Elect, which takes place in 2315, several decades after Earth collapses and the United States becomes Concordia. She’s part of an elite group called the Elect, who protected Concordia from supposedly mythological creatures when they were first formed and who now mostly protect against Shades, corrupted members of their order. She also has a superpower, because she’s descended from one of the original Elect, and can control fire. I hope you enjoy her interview! Continue reading “Character Interview: Madison Thompson”
