Writing Prompt Wednesdays

Your character is the first at something—the first woman doctor (in honor of Elizabeth Blackwell), the first black president, etc.--place them in an everyday setting and see how they interact. How do others react to them? What does their personality type allow them to do (high achievers in common places)? How do they handle stress? Write to your heart's content. :)

Post your piece on your blog, and your link in the comment section below.  Spread the word about this writing meme to other writers and readers you know.

I promise to post my piece a bit later today, so be sure to check back.  I have to run my son to school first.  (Life before art!)

Another migraine day...I'll post some writing later this week to make up for it.


  1. Interesting idea. I'll have to think of a character who is the first at something. Hmm. Considering the current news, perhaps the first woman to serve on a nuclear sub.

    Straight From Hel

  2. One of these days I'll do this, although it won't happen on a Wednesday.

  3. Fun prompt - wish I had more time :)

  4. Ugh- migraines suck!

    But there's an award waiting for you on my blog when you return!

  5. I should have paid more attention to the news today, Helen!

    Alex- I know, it's a tough one. I may have to change the date. Any suggestions?

    Jemi- You, too, any date suggestions?

    Stephanie- Too sweet! Thank you!
