Exercise In Wish-Fulfillment

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I just finished watching Joss Whedon’s show Dollhouse again. It’s a really interesting show conceptually. It asks a lot of questions about human nature and desire. It also shows us some of the dangers of wish-fulfillment. Many of the stories that tell us to be careful what we wish for show how our wishes will hurt us. But with Dollhouse the question is also “how will your wish hurt someone else?” Write a scene in which your character wishes for something but in order to get it someone else will have to be hurt. Is your character able to live with that price? And what about the other character, the one getting hurt, what happens to him?

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
