It's a brainstorming exercise! I know that's cheers, not groans I hear :) Here's the situation. Your character just won the lottery, $5 billion. Pretty amazing, eh? Tell me about what your character is going to do with the money. Are they going to buy a drink for everyone in town? Ten new cars? A condo in 10 countries? Give it to charity? Let's see what different ideas we can come up with.
My character is Meghan. She's a 32-year-old single woman, no kids. She bought the lottery ticket on a whim, she's far too jaded to be hopeful to win something like that. The money allows her to spoil herself, but unfortunately it brought an undesirable out of the woodwork. Her dad abandoned her when she was 6 years old. Old enough to feel his loss. He'd appeared time and again, only ever wanting things from her. Especially once her mom died of cancer 10 years ago.
This time her dad shows up asking for $2 million. He swears that he got into some gambling debt and his life is being threatened. That's a small chunk of her winnings, but is it worth bailing her dad out of trouble? He's been to jail several times for possesion and attempted murder. He's not a good guy. Should she let karma do its work, or save him demanding he never contact her again?
Tell me your story!
