Your characters have imaginary backgrounds and we must treat them as if they are real people. A good way to stay sharp as a writer is to practice by creating imaginary backgrounds for real people you don’t know.
To do this exercise, go to your profile page, click on any of your friends, click on one of their friends (who you don’t know) and take note of their name and photo.
Now, go to your profile page again, click on the Notes tab, paste these rules into a new note and then write a short, imaginative story outline about them. Don’t take too long to think about it. Tag the friend you found the person through and then tag me because I’m interested in what you come up with.
Good luck and happy writing,
