1) Come up with a family of characters, each with their own unique personality. Are the kids rowdy or well-behaved? Do the parents get along and support each other or no? Now create a typical family dinner night conversation between the family. Do they argue or is their conversation congenial? 2) Create a character with one or more of the following psychological functions: Thinking, Feeling, Sensation, or Intuition. How do they employ this function in their dealings with everyday life? 3) Write a story in which an interesting conversation gets interrupted by an unforeseeable event. What’s more interesting – the conversation or the event? What were your characters talking about and what event interrupted them? 4) There is a prized historical relic up for auction. What’s the story behind it and it’s historical significance? How much are you willing to pay for it? If you get it, what will you do with it? What could it be used for in the wrong hands? Explain these things to your friend who is at the auction with you. 5) Come up with a legend or long-lost lore. It could be about something that happened long ago – who was involved? Does it include some high-tech or magical objects? 6) Depict a fight between a married couple. What triggered this fight? Was it a long time in coming? Was there a lot of yelling or no? 7) Is destiny governed by the personal forces of an omnipotent deity, or is it mostly random luck or chance? Have a character undergo an event and explain what happens to them in relation to the nature of their fortune. Was this event good or bad?
