DICE MEMORIES CHALLENGE!
IS LIFE JUST A ROLL OF A DICE?
When Dot in ‘MISSING Past and Present’ threw a dice, she remembered scenes in her life as if they were pages in her own book. Her back story.
AUTHORS ~ Think of a character in your book, or one of your novels that you are proud of.
READERS ~ Think of a character in a novel you really enjoyed recently.
If a throw of a SIX represents the best day or ‘happening’ in your chosen character’s life and a ONE the worst, can you write down memories from ONE TO SIX.
The challenge is to choose moments in their lives which intrigue a reader into wanting to know more, without giving the whole plot away.
I’m going to begin. Just to give you an idea I am going to chose Jamal. ~an important character in my novel but not the protagonist.
A short character description ~ Jamal is a Syrian refugee who has been living in the UK for over two years. He is intelligent, thoughtful and is a hard worker.
ONE ~ Jamal remembers the moment he lost both his parents in the war back home.
TWO ~ His feelings when arriving in England were bewildering. The only person he had to cling to, who gave him any thoughts of normality was his older brother Ahmed.
THREE ~ Working at his friend Brian’s Dad’s business.
FOUR ~ Learning to speak English at Mrs G’s (Dot’s) kitchen table
FIVE ~ Jamal found Dot.
SIX ~ Jamal fell in love.
