Here's a writing prompt: Imagine your character listening to a real-world song. It doesn't matter how old or recent it is, but it's a song from our world. He/she likes it, and may have the tendency to dance/sing along with the lyrics. Your prompt is this: write a paragraph stating the song and why your character loves it so much -- what does the lyrics say about your character? Does he/she aspire to be what the lyrics/message of the song is about? It's OK if you can't remember the author or the song's title. And if your MC exists in a universe where our songs could not exist -- just pretend they do for this prompt. Here are two of mine: MC #1- Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up. Why? He's a protector, a guardian. To him, the lyrics define the kind of man he is: someone who never stops protecting people who need it. He will never hurt them, let them down, or betray them. He also has an upbeat, get-going personality -- very energetic. MC #2- Tom Petty's And I Won't Back Down. Her entire character personified. No matter what life throws at her, no matter what obstacles stand in her way, she refuses to call it quits. She is stubborned, and considers the very word ‘defeat’ to be non-existent in her vocabulary. No matter what, she's got this shit. She's gonna get shit done. So, what is the music that defines your MC? What is it about the message that speaks to your MC and why?
