Creative Writing Group Williamsburg

Prompts for February 27, 2017

Since we’ve finished with the antagonists, let’s move on to their cousins the anti-heroes. The bad boys of the main character world, anti-heroes are never nice all the time. Gallant was always just a little too perfect for me. Your prompt this month is to begin a short story with an anti-hero as the protagonist.  Need more to go on? Choose one of the scenarios below.

He was a treasure seeker, plain and simple. He didn’t want to donate to museums or improve mankind’s understanding of lost civilizations, he wanted cold hard cash. He’s operated this mercenary way for years until innocent people are put on the line during his treasure hunt. Is the money worth more than human life?

She didn’t give a fig about the people who watched her shows. She was an actress because she was good at it, loved to be the center of attention, and made money. If she helped charities or relief efforts it was all part of the image…until she got personally involved.

Sure he’s a bounty hunter, and sure that means he doesn’t care much for others. He is in the line of work to get cash, but some of that cash goes to his little sister. He does care about her, though not enough to do more than send money in her direction. He’s not the stay at home type. Will he be there when she needs him? If so, you can bet he isn’t going to play nice.

Five Words

Sanction, Cantankerous, Deem, Gambol, Whimsical

Bonus Prompt

They toured the house with the real estate agent.

“We love it,” he said. “Is there anything we need to know about the house’s past?”

The agent looked down.
