Week 4 – #WritingWednesday Challenge

Today is the fourth edition of #WritingWednesday!!!

Writing Wednesday

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 Kim, a character in my upcoming novel The Beast Within (This is not a selection from the novel, but part of my character development journal.)

Today’s writing prompt:

Come up with a mathematical formula to express something you know/believe.
(Example: Relaxing Saturday evening + Movie + Popcorn = Happiness)

I’m a hard worker, for the most part. I moved cross-country, on my own, at just seventeen. I’ve known what I want to do with my life since I was thirteen. Fashion isn’t an easy business to break into, but I did it. I have my own clothing line, my own boutique, and my spring line flew off the racks last season. Honestly, success is all about hard work, dedication, and a positive attitude.

Hard Work + Dedication + Positive Attitude = Success

Sure, things haven’t always been easy. In fact, lately they’ve been harder than normal. Trisha up a quit on me after that girl was found dead down the street, so now I’m training a new girl, Sophie. She seems nice though. She’s definitely a hard worker, but most days it seems like she’s daydreaming about other things. She’s from somewhere down south, Georgia or Alabama… some place like that. I don’t think she’ll last very long. If she does, I’ll be surprised. Don’t get me wrong, I like her. I do. I think we could actually turn out to be friends, but she’s kind of jumpy, she scares to easily.

  1. A trip out to Mars always equaled a nasty day filled with assembling a new repair bot. Phantom kept breaking down from meteorites had exploded on the surface of the red planet months prior, damaging Phantom into a mess of scrap metal and broken bones that she did not have the time to repair.
    This day was especially nasty, the whole machine in pieces scattered across the three miles surrounding it. The whole receiver was trashed, and required being built again. And tuning. And positioning.
    A broken bot, a trip to Mars, and especially on her day off, equalled out to a terrible day.

  2. “Elyse, you are never going to win this fight if you are always attacking,. You have to stop and think,” my father said down to me.

    “If you weren’t my father, you would have been dead three times over by now,” I huffed, “I’m just at a disadvantage because I was quite literally trained to kill.”

    “And that may be true, but you will very rarely be fighting to kill now. You will be fighting purely to defend yourself, and that’s clearly something you don’t know how to do.”

    I said nothing in response but I quickly pulled my sword out of its sheath, knocked his out of his hand, and pressed my sword to his chest.

    “Actually, dad, I think I’m quite good at fighting.”

    He chuckled, “Elyse, fighting and defending are two different things. Concentration + Contemplating + Consideration = Defense. Not rushing in brashly, which you are quite good at.”

    I slid my sword into its sheath and through gritted teeth I said, “then teach me.”

  3. sleep + more sleep= a good night

    Aiden doesn’t like parties. His best friend, Bexley, had been begging him to go to some block party someone from their school was going to, and was absolutely not having it. Bexley said he was a junior in high school and this is the only time he’ll be able to “live it up,” but Aiden doesn’t care. There’s only one thing that makes a good night for Aiden, and that’s a peaceful slumber.
    Aiden has this thing where he’s always tired. Probably just teenager stuff, he isn’t sure. However, he knows one thing for sure, sleep is the single best thing in the world, and to deprive himself of that by going to some silly little party he wouldn’t have had fun at is a ridiculous notion. Bexley can have fun at her party, Aiden will be at home having the perfect night by sleeping, and then doing more sleeping.

  4. Danny’s milkshakes + a glowing necklace = total confusion.

    My dad’s old necklace came in the mail today. The glowing green and blue cylinder of sparkles. Why would a big man, full of cigars and guns, like my father own a necklace like this? My head was swirling with confusion as I sat in my dads old diner. The mail man said it was to be sent on my twenty third birthday, no matter what had happened to my dad. The whole thing seems sketchy. No matter what happened? It sounds like he knew dad’s fate before it happened. But then again everyone in this town acted like they knew it would happen. This town, it’s the same as before I passed out, but different at the same time. I was thinking about the necklace and slurping in my milkshake when an older man approached. I have him a quick glance and went back to what I was doing.
    “Hi, my name is Danny. I will be taking your order. What would you like?” He asked. I scrunched my eyebrows together. Did he not see I had already ordered? I looked up at the man and gasped.
    “Dad?”
