Prompt 10/2/12: Spicy Archetypes
Brainstorm about 5 typical characteristics for each of the 5
archetypes. Can be physical (e.g. always wears a cape), situational
(always falls in love with protagonist), or a personality trait
-manic pixie dream girl
Alternative Step 1:
Use our characteristics if you don’t want to brainstorm your own.
Take 20 minutes to write a piece starring one (or more, if you’re
ambitious!) of these archetypes. Except, make them fresh and
dynamic–you must write the character without any of the listed
defining characteristics. Make the archetype your own while
maintaining its essence.
