Novel Kicks Writing Room: Combining Characters

Novel Kicks Writing RoomFor today’s writing room, I thought it would be fun to combine characters that up until this point have had nothing to do with one another.

Write a short piece of fiction (max. 1,500) involving your favourite hero/heroine and your favourite villain.

They don’t need to be from the same original story.

A couple of suggestions: Pip from Great Expectations and President Snow from The Hunger Games, Elizabeth Bennett and Voldermort.

The characters meet under stressful circumstances and begin a conversation.

How do they react in this environment? How do they react to one another?

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.

    What a fantastic writing exercise! A great way to push your limits of character interaction with already well-defined characters. I am going to do this by the weekend! I just need to decide on the heroes and villains to use. So many to choose from.
