Writing Prompts: Character Centric

These prompts are designed with a character in mind. Use the brief quotation to create a character of your own!

“There are two types of people in the world: those who hire someone to do a job and those who are determined to be a do-it-yourself-er.”

“The last thing he expected to do that day was run into the person he had been desperately trying to forget since the last time they saw each other.”

“She was and always would be the best part of my life… Too bad she didn’t know it.”

“The people who raised me were practically strangers to me now. It wasn’t my intention to be gone so long,  but as I walked up the sidewalk of my childhood home, I couldn’t help but feel anxious. Should I just knock on the door? Would they even recognize me?”

“Who was this man? Sure, we’d all known him for the four years we’d been attending this school, but as I looked at him, I started to realize how little I knew about him.”
