Week 14 – #WritingWednesday Challenge

Today is the 14th Edition of #WritingWednesday!!!

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 my voice. I usually write in the voice of one of my characters, but today’s prompt really spoke to me. I hope it speaks to you too.

Today’s writing prompt:

Write about three goals (realistic or maybe a little far-reaching) that you would like to achieve in your lifetime.

I have plenty of goals… I love a good ‘to do’ list and even more so, I love to set goals. I have a huge list of short-term goals and a fairly long list of long-term goals. However, today I want to talk about those goals I haven’t had the guts to write out. Three really big, far-reaching, goals that I’d love to achieve but don’t really expect to manage.

  1. I want to make the New York Time’s Best Seller’s List! As an author, that just seems like the ultimate ‘you’ve made it’ moment. I want my books to touch someone. I want them to make a difference in someone else’s life. I want them to be read.
  2. I want to give a Ted Talk… I’d love to talk about writing, being a struggling author, and the hurdles you have to overcome in order to make it. The hurdles you do overcome if you’re really passionate about what you’re writing.
  3. I went to college for acting… I wanted to be an actress. I still do. I do theatre, I’ve done a number of commercials, and for a short period I lived out in Los Angeles and did the whole struggling actor thing booking a few jobs here and there. Hell, I’m even a SAG/AFTRA member. I want, at some point in my lifetime, to get a role I can be truly proud of. I want that ‘you’ve made it’ moment as an actress.

Yeah, those are my three really big goals. Now that I’ve put them out into the universe, who knows, maybe they will manifest. So, what are your goals?

  1. Today I am writing in the voice of Kyra, a character in my upcoming short story, Fleeting Shadows.

    I have many, many, many goals for my life. I want to get married, I want to have children, I want to have my own house that wasn’t given to me. I want to earn the things I long for. Growing up as a child in the royal court, you get everything handed to you, and I mean everything. Your kid is struggling with their classes, talk to the teacher, they curve the kid’s grade. You want your baby to be a starter for the big game, suggest to the coach that it would be a mistake if they weren’t. I have always been known as “Leeta’s daughter” or “Nate’s sister”. I have never been known as “Kyra”. I have fought and fought to make myself my own person but even leaving my tribe didn’t help that. With the hybrids I was still second to someone. There was always a name that came before mine. I want for people to see me and think, “that’s Kyra, best friend to the Princess”, or, “oh, Kyra, the one who has settled so many petty castle staff arguments since she’s been put in charge.” My deepest longing is to be remember for my perseverance, my drive, and my ruthless ambition. I want to be remembered as the girl who fought her way to recognition and did whatever she had to to keep her tribe safe.
