Relationship Prompts

Relationship Prompts

One of the things that can really fuel your story is the relationship between characters. This may be the protagonist and antagonist, but it can also be a relationship between one of your main characters and a minor character, or an subplot between two minor characters.

If you get stuck in the middle of your story, a relationship prompt may give you something to get the story moving again.

Pick two of the characters below and see how many of the questions you can answer with them. (Feel free to substitute one of you own characters if you are already in the middle of a story and trying to get unstuck.)
