Help Me Choose Characters for My Story - I could do it myself, but why should I when I have you?
I am too lazy to think up character names
It's time I wrote another story. I think this story will be about Ruby who works in an office doing something. I would like to populate this story with characters I have not personally chosen. It's like a little writing challenge for me, having to come up with a story using suggestions from other people. Anyone want to help?
If you would like to play this game, then please leave in your comment the name of a character, what that character looks like, and what the character does for a living. This shouldn't be a character that already exists anywhere in fact or fiction, but one that you have just made up off the top of your head. For instance, you could say:
Character name: Fantasia Muck
Character job: Massage therapist
Character's physical appearance: Maroon hair, thin as a stick, and taller than average
For me, the challenge will be trying to create a story using as many of the characters as I can. I will have to make a cut-off point somewhere, just in case I am lucky enough to have many responses. So arbitrarily, I will just guess I will use 10 of the suggestions made by my fellow hubbers. But, that is subject to change. If your character does not make it into the story, don't fret! It just means my creativity went on strike or that I ran out of room in my story.
Ruby is lonely
Poor lonely Ruby. She is the only one in my story so far. She is looking around for other characters to interact with, but there are none yet because I haven't provided any. Ruby is counting on you to help her! She feels so vulnerable being the only character in the story. She really doesn't want to carry the literary burden by herself. So, come on, help a girl out. Contribute a character to the story!
Okay, the story is here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Ruby-and-Pete-and-Rex-the-Cheat
Thanks everyone for all the great suggestions!
