Week 24 – #WritingWednesday Challenge

Today is the 24th 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 Austin, a character in the novel I’m currently writing.

Today’s writing prompt:

Write about a souvenir you have bought or received!

Let me start by saying I don’t journal and I think this is a waste of time. I work, a lot. Usually seven days a week and a lot of double shifts. That doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for souvenir shopping, as I’m sure you can imagine.

Although, I do camp. I suppose that’s something. There aren’t many shops out in the woods, or any for that matter, but there are people. I meet some interesting people out in the woods. One overly nice young lady I met, April was her name, gave me a lovely gold necklace with a solitary diamond hanging from it.

I suppose that should count as a souvenir I received, although I didn’t keep it. It was to delicate and pretty for me to wear. I ended up giving it to my girlfriend, Sophie. I’m not sure she fully appreciated what I went through to get it for her. I suppose I couldn’t really tell her all the gory details, now could I?

    From the perspective of Sabine;

    I once recieved a tiny souvenir from Gamma. It was a tiny thing, hardly a centimeter across. She gave it to me on my last birthday, saying it was a key of sorts. She said it was given to her on a far distant planet, but I still don’t know where she got it or what it’s a key for.

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

    I suppose I’ve received many souvenirs in my lifetime, although they never really had any meaning. Usually, they were gifts from dignitaries from other tribes to get in with my father. The only souvenir I can think of that actually means something to me is my favorite leather bound journal. It has a black cover with a picture of a manticore pressed in to it. Joseph gave it to me when I was eleven. I was still very interested in “mythical creatures” at that time. That was before I learned that a great number of them still roamed our continent so they kind of lost their pizazz. But by any accounts, manticores were my favorite so that’s what Joseph gave me. He told me it was for me to write down visions and prophecies in. He said that any good seer always kept a notebook on them because they never knew when a vision would strike. I have filled the pages of the notebook up time and time again. I could’ve gotten rid of the cover but instead I went through the trouble of getting it rebound. I just couldn’t make myself give it up because I remember how excited I was when Joseph came back from his first diplomatic mission with our father and gave it to me. I don’t even remember what tribe he had visited, I just remember that he looked at something and thought of me. That was a feeling I could’ve used more of in my childhood.
