write1

Remember, #WritingWednesday is an EASY, STRESS-FREE, weekly writing challenge.

  • Read the writing prompt below,
  • Spend 5 minutes writing (in your own voice or the voice of a character you’re writing) whatever comes to mind,
  • DON’T EDIT what you write! IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT!

The goal is 5 minutes of creativity.

Today I am writing in the voice of Sophie, a character in my upcoming novel The Beast Within (At this time, this is not a selection from the novel, but may be included in the final version).

Today’s writing prompt:

Write about something presently in your life (or the life of your character) that is: “WORTH IS”

Is it possible to be terrified and exhilarated at the same time? Because, honestly, I think that is the only way to describe how I’m feeling right now. Life hasn’t always been easy. Sure, I had amazing parents, not everyone can say that. They loved me more than life, but my dad died a few years ago which sent my mom into a deep depression. I wasn’t able to be there for her the way I wish I could have been. I was in my own personal hell at the time. I had just graduated college with a dual major, literature and journalism, and was three weeks a newlywed. My husband, Jonathan Klein, had been a grad student working as a teacher’s assistant during my Sophomore year. We hit it off right away, but kept our relationship strictly professional, at least in public. He seemed like the perfect guy, interested in the same things as me, handsome, funny, and extremely talented. Then, on the night of our wedding things changed. What should have been a romantic escape, eloping with the man of my dreams in the Florida Keys, ended up being Marriage 101 ~ life in hell. Jonathan showed his true colors that night. Gone were the days of our courtship and with them my freedom.

  1. Not much held any meaning. Phantom was hardly worth going trillions of light-years out of her way to repair, and Spider definitely wasn’t worth undercover stealth operations to repair.
    Phantom was special, a device of her own making, built from the dust upwards. It held a sense of pride in her heart, perhaps it would be worth the trips out there to that frigid Mars once the target had been identified and the Shatterglades showered her in wealth upon its arrival to their planet of operations.
    Spider, however, was a filthy little thing attached to the underside of spaceships that took too long to retrieve and fix for how little it would work before promptly shutting off when the biometrics scan on the ship came back negative. She hated Spider, but Phantom was worth it.

  2. “Just keep pushing, it’s worth it.” I mumble to myself as I grudge through the main hall in ridiculous dress. Out of all the people to be Marie Antoinette is not my number one choice. But it’s all for dad. Get the boy to fall in love with you, get sent back to present time, dad is okay. Easy peasy right? Wrong. Lover boy seems to be the king of England. England! And during this time, we’ll England and France aren’t so buddy buddy at the moment. I had to promise him France and my hand for one meeting! All these people talk so proper, and in a different language! I’ve been guessing at what sir John has been saying for a week now! But it’s all for dad. I might be rewriting history, but dads worth it.

  3. My escape with Axel was supposed to solve all my problems, not unleash a whole new hoard of them. I wasn’t supposed to get pregnant at 17 when we were living in the smallest of small apartments. I wasn’t supposed to go into labor early and nearly die while giving birth. I was supposed to realize that Axel only wanted me so he could have a chance of having a clairvoyant child for his stupid Skyfire project. So that’s how I got where I am now. I had a horrible past, I was separated from my daughter for years but now we’re safe. Hugo and I have a nicely sized home and the shelter is running well. The dangers in Blune have practically disappeared since Axel’s death and all the Elite’s in the city can live without fear of Axel’s group hunting them down to recruit them. I’ve done my best to teach all the younger Elites how to manage their powers safely and I have quite a few who are really excelling. I had a bad past and I refuse to let that happen to the girls and boys in my care. They will be happy and I will ensure it no matter what danger I have to face from now on to do so.
