The many lives of a soul. (Image credit: Himalayan Academy Publications)

This week, you can write about yourself, someone else, or a fictional character.  Whomever you choose, that person is going to die twice in your post for this week’s challenge.

Imagine that someone is going through successive lives and that those lives (or individual events from those successive lives) come together to develop a person’s spirit.  With this in mind, write three stories; each story should come from a different reincarnation of that person but that person must be a different entity in each story.  The result should (at least somewhat) resemble the character development you normally find in a novel but without keeping that character in the same body.  You could also use this challenge to show how your selected person or character became the way they are or to speculate about what they’ll be like in their future lives.

Compose and publish your response to this prompt on your own blog.  Be sure to include a link to this post so that a pingback will appear here, thereby allowing other participants to discover your work.  Please be patient if your pingback does not appear immediately; I am not at my computer 24/7 and I have to approve all pingbacks.  For this reason, using the bcandelabra tag may be advisable.



  1. An interesting challenge. Got a couple of ideas running around in my head, but will take a bit of thinking. Hmmmm

  2. I’m sorry to have not quite followed the rules, but this idea got stuck in my head. It’s almost on theme. Sort of, sort of not. It’s also very short, so if you find it annoying, you will not find it annoying for long. See you after midnight.

    1. I know what you mean. I wish there were a way to enable pingbacks to show automatically (without me having to approve them) for those of you who participate week after week.
