Writing Prompt #195 “Collage 36 and A World Apart 4”

Collage 36.jpg

The quote “Judging a person does not define who they are. It defines who you are.” Unknown

What is the underlying theme? What’s the story here? The overarching emotions? If you like you can read them like panels in a comic strip it’s up to you how your interpret them. Literal or abstract are both perfectly acceptable.

If you have some great quote suggestions leave them in the comments below and I will use them in a future collage! Alternately if you are a photographer and would like to share some of your photos for the purpose of the collages let me know. If you are interested in making a collage for the prompt, let me know in the comments below.

I decided to add the World Apart challenge as an extra instead of the main feature because I haven’t received very many responses. Lots of enthusiasm, no responses. Note you can do one or both challenges.

This week we are going to explore government in relation to the worlds that we have been building. As you might have realized by now my planet doesn’t have a government and therefore I can’t offer you a cohesive and detailed example as I have being doing, instead I am going to offer some key points for consideration. As not everyone will be creating a planet or country it may be that some of my suggestions don’t apply to your particular case, skip them if they don’t apply and move on to the relevant bits! While you are welcome to write to your heart’s content I am only asking for a summary/outline of some key features. If you like you can put this into profile form as well.

What type of government is it? (monarchy, republic, democracy etc.)

Whose in charge?

What do they stand for? (mottoes, creeds)

What kind of power do they have?

How did they come into power?

Is there any sort of class or cast system at play?

A list of the basic rights.

    I think the “thing” is about the World Apart end is that, in essence, you’re setting out the outline for a book or some really long story – full through development etc. And it’s a great idea and technique …. but you have to be engaged in this because you actually want to be or are writing something that fully developed etc. It takes a ton of time, energy and effort …. almost as much as writing the “finished” process itself. And I have to say, as a “creative prod” tool – it’s really cool – because elements can be picked and you can use it selectively in other types of writing, but I would say, that on the whole …. this “project” is really like a gestation or pregnancy. So maybe that’s why there aren’t too many actual responses to it.

    Still, it’s interesting.

      I knew it could be a time intensive project and I knew I would get less responses as a result, it was a gamble. I received a lot of enthusiasm and that is why I keep putting it up because even if people aren’t posting maybe, just maybe it is helping those who are interested in creating their own Universe. I really loved creating the factions and I must admit I was very excited to see if anyone else would create a faction.

        I think it’s good that you’re still interested in it – and posting about it – because you’re right, someone could be using these prompts, ideas and techniques as sources or focuses, so it’s totally cool.

        And hey, great ideas are always gambles, so why not? 😀

        I wanted to continue because I knew there were several writers who expressed interest and it turns out they are using the prompts even if they aren’t posting

    I know I haven’t posted much of what I’ve come up with thanks to your World Apart prompt, but that’s because I’m actually attempting to finish that one novel to submit next week.
    The prompts have been a tremendous help because – believe it or not – the ‘tearing it apart to build it back up’ allowed me to find some plot holes that I hadn’t seen or rather ignored: I realized they were inherent to the fabric of the world itself. So even if it’s not being posted it’s being put to work. Hopefully good use in the end 😛 if I can finish on time.
    I can’t thank you enough for that 🙂

        If I can only focus just about long enough to finish the editing by next Friday it’ll be great…

    I haven’t reached the novel stage — congrats Stephanie — but I have been taking your prompts, as I’ve said, into consideration for longer pieces — the backdrop for the characters, the development of the worlds in which they inhabit. I don’t think I’ll ever actually post — the results are a book in and of themselves — but I have definitely benefited from your efforts. Benefits of mostly a private nature — I doubt any of these stories will “see the light of “public” day.” But, I have tried to keep them in consideration for one of my characters who keeps appearing and writing her own story. Thanks.
