Author’s Notes: This is part 2 of 3 based on a three month challenge collaborating by using the Sims created by others in the SimLit Monthly Challenge group. 

Step 1 – READ HERE– create a new character and upload it to the gallery. Create the backstory for this character. FIND TODD HERE in the gallery as Castaway Todd

Step 2 – This chapter – I selected Veronica Grey, one of the characters from another writer’s character introduction to incorporate as an antagonist (creating tension or conflict for Todd) (as per the rules – 673 words, 10 images)

Step 3 – HERE –  a third character will be added to the storyline as a protagonist (a supporting character that may help to resolve or smooth over the tension or conflict)

  1. That picture where Todd finds Veronica washed up on the beach had me laughing out loud. He looks so exasperated! I understand Todd. It’s one thing to take care of yourself or even another adult, but a baby on a deserted island? This installment made me love Todd more. He appears rough around the edges, but he’s a softie on the inside.

  2. I love that his first thought upon seeing Veronica isn’t “Oh no! I’d better back up slowly and pretend I didn’t see anything!” but “Oh no! I have to take care of the baby!” He immediately takes responsibility. What a sweetie!
