Week 20 – #WritingWednesday Challenge

Today is the 20th 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 the voice of Tommas, one of the characters in the novel I am currently outlining. I’m not sure if this will be a selection in the novel, or just part of my character development journal.

Today’s writing prompt:

What modern technological device takes up most of your time?

My life is essentially ruled by one device, the metabolic piezoelectric sensor version 5.3. It’s a small device I wear on my chest to detect the changes in vibration levels throughout my body. It connects to my nervous system, through a series of wires attached at the ends with sticky nodes, and transmits data directly to a central computer at the corporate offices of Operation Atlas. There, a team of medical professionals monitor my health and another team monitors my every move.

I haven’t always worked for Operation Atlas; I used to be free. It wasn’t until some of the younger metamorphs were discovered that the company was developed and the hunt began. It’s my job, if I want to survive, to locate others like me… others with powers that the organization deems useful. Not all metamorphs are high priority but those that are, like the oracles, the psychokinetic, and the incendiaries they assign to me.

  1. Today I am writing in the voice of James, a character in my upcoming novel, Fleeting Shadows.

    The award for most used technology has got to go to my trusty easel. Easels aren’t necessarily a new concept, but they are still technology. Ever since I’ve been home, I’ve finally been able to paint like I want to. Back in the cave, the others would tease me and say painting was too “sissy” or “girly”. I know they didn’t mean it, we were just children, but it pressured me into not doing what I love. Now that I’ve been home for about eight months, I have painted at least a hundred paintings, if not more. My family has encouraged me to paint as much as I like, they’ve even given me a spare room in the house. I’ve also started selling my work, you make mucho bucko when you are a famous warrior. I don’t do it for me though, all the money I earn goes straight to a foundation dedicated to repairing damage caused by the war. My art has brought me such joy, so I only thought it was fair that the money I made from it was used to improve others’ lives. In the end, I intend to open up my own art studio so others can experience the joy painting brings me. I guess I’m gonna need a lot more easels before I get to that though.

  2. From the perspective of Sabine, a space wanderer.

    The ship I own takes up my time. I’m attached to the fun technological tablets on it when I’m not making repairs or running away from my last adventure. Maybe it doesn’t count as a technological device, but it’s made up of some of the most advanced shatterglade tech money can buy.
    There’s not much tech to play with in space anyway.
