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.
