What does 31 Fantasy Characters in 31 Days mean?

2 years ago, I took part in the Write 31 Days Challenge, a community-driven writer’s encouragement to write 31 blog posts in 31 days. I didn’t finish that challenge, but I’ve decided to give it a go again.

This time, I’m joining up with the Five Minute Friday crowd’s version of the Challenge, 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes. It means that each post will only be written in five free-flowing minutes. As is customary of Five Minute Friday, the post is to be inspired by a single given word (I know most of those words from the start, see below). But in addition to that, I’ve also added my own challenge, and that is to have each post be about a fantasy character, somehow related to that word.

Describe a character in five minutes? Sure, why not?

Perhaps you might see an actual character or two from my book, or perhaps someone new from that same world; but I plan for most to be brand new, from worlds I’ve never dreamed of until now.

I’m thinking maybe I’ll put up a poll at the end of the 31 days, let people vote for their favorite, and then write a proper short story about the winning character.

This should be fun. Enjoy!
