Novel Kicks Writing Room: Combinations

Welcome back to the Novel Kicks Writing Room. Today, it’s about combinations.

Pick a character from either something you’ve written or from the book you are currently reading. This is your main character.

Now randomly choose three more, each from different stories and as varied as you can make them.

Your main character is speed dating. One at a time, this character has a brief conversation with your other three choices before the bell goes off and they have to move on.

Write only using dialogue.

For each one, write for five minutes each time.

You could then always do other combinations within these characters. How would it work if your main character was suddenly the one who had to impress the others?

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.
