NaNoWriMo 2021! Day 7

Advice: Let your characters determine the story. Well-developed characters are key. If you’re struggling to outline, they may be the solution. When you outline a character’s motivations, you’ll uncover the situations, events, or details that will cause them the most conflict and help direct the flow of your story. You’ll know how they will react to situations and interact with each other. This can help turn a general plot idea into a complex web of conflicts, high stakes and exciting, realistic dialogue. If you get stuck, you can use the characters to fuel a new idea.

Prompt: Tell your readers everything you can about a character who is cursed by never being able to tell the truth (even when they want to).

Weekend Challenge: Strange and/or Weird Names for Pubs/Bars--WOO HOO!!

Guess what kids, I’m in charge of the Weekend Challenge on this gorgeously autumnal weekend of October and I decided we needed strangely funny/ stangely weird pub/bar names!

Please keep in mind that the names of the pub/bars could be from the UK or the USA.  Just choose a number between 1 and 31 and I will give you a fabulously weird drinking establishment name.

I hope this craziness inspires you, so please be as creative as you can--drabbles/fics can be as long as you want but at least 200 words and you can do any sort of art work the spirit moves you    Just post your work by Thursday night at 11:59pm EST, and you'll be golden.  Lastly, HAVE FUN!!!
