OK, authors and writers out there.

Question for you.

Yes, YOU.

What would happen if you were stranded on a desert island with your characters?

characters on a desert island

You can pick your favorites, if you have one.

Would you get bored? Would one of you end up killing the other? Would someone figure out how to escape the island? Would there be intrigue, catharsis, heartbreak?

I just thought of this. Google’s first page doesn’t come up with similar thought experiments, so I’ll call it an original exercise.

Paint the scene for yourself. Maybe it will help kickstart your plot.
