DWP No. 047



For WEEK THREE, we are going to do a little character development through a series of questions.


  • Each day, THREE QUESTIONS will be asked
  • Assume a character and answer the three questions IN CHARACTER.




BUT HERE’S THE RUB! (optional)

If anyone comments on your writings, you have to intake that as part of your character, essentially agreeing to whatever anyone brings up as either a comment or questions.

For instance, let’s say you were thinking that your character is a doctor. If someone comments and asks if your character is a circus clown, then you have to say “Yes,” and take that little tidbit and incorporate it into your character, whether or not you like how they’ve changed your character.










  1. Being afraid in my home sweet home? Not a chance. It took me nine months to find this place and I love everything about it – the color, the light that streams in through the windows, and the freedom that’s everywhere.

    No, I don’t have a pet although once in a while I do talk to the Hummingbird who visits the neighbor’s feeder. Pets require commitment, a relationship, and an obligation to them. What a waste of time!

    When is a flower dead, you ask? That’s a very personal question. How would I know?

  2. ‘Even’ Pt. 2

    What are you most afraid of in your own home?
    Of course, I’m afraid of the corridor that leads to pure darkness, whereupon exiting the other side, you no longer know where you are. Next.

    Do you have a pet?
    Of course, I have a cat. Next.

    At what point is a flower dead?
    This depends, of course, on whether or not the flower wanted to die, what type of flower it wanted most to be, and at what time of day the flower came into full bloom. Do you possess this such information? I didn’t think so, so unfortunately, I can be of no help in the matter. Next.

  4. 4. What are you most afraid of in your own home?
    There is a blade hanging by a cord from the ceiling above the headboard of my bed. I affixed it there to remind me that this life hangs by a thread, and if I cannot rest and find comfort in the truth that circumstances beyond my control are always operating, even while I sleep, then I don’t even deserve the luxury of a good night’s rest. It is simultaneously the source of my greatest fear and greatest comfort.

    5. Do you have a pet?
    I do, actually. It is, by all accounts, quite a rare breed indeed, too. It is a “jefflam sprout”, so I was told by the woman who grew it herself before offering it to me. As I understand it to work, the adolescent plant senses human pheromones in its local atmosphere as it grows and adapts its behavior kinetically to the physical source of what it “smells”. Now, in this species, at least, this little plant can’t up and walk around to find things it likes to smell, but it does clearly hold preferences, and now that it has become symbiotic with me, it does an adorable little stroking/petting sort of motion against my flesh if I get close to it. And it continues to do it as long as the situation persists. It can even pick out my fingers independently from those of other non-me people!
    And there’s something even more remarkable! It grows really quickly and sprouts a little seed pod, like this one here, that yields about a hundred little seeds in around ten days. Then you can plant the seeds inside any other fruit pit or seed and they’ll use those host nutrients to grow. AND they grow asexually so they pass on pheromone memory genetically! Each new little jefflam sprout remembers the scents its ancestors were all attracted to. So, in the course of my life… actually, I will not tell you how many times I have replicated my pet over the years. You don’t need to know that.
    Yes, I have a pet.

    6. At what point is a flower dead?
    I have learned that all flowers can continue their lives if they so desire, but they also have the freedom to let go, and it is at this threshold, determined individually by each flower, that it may drop its defenses against cellular degeneration and offer itself to the bacterial world as a sacrifice for the good of the whole.

    What do you discuss with the hummingbird?

    If the death of a flower is such a very personal question, what is your very personal answer?
