Today I am writing in the voice of Ava, 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 are you recovering from right now?
I have third degree burns down the right side of my face and body. I’ve been in the Operation Atlas Treatment Center for over a month and the doctors say I’ll be released in just under a week. The average human would take months and multiple skin graft surgeries before they’d be healed enough to leave. Not me, I heal quickly. It’s one of the many benefits of being a metamorph.
Sure, without the surgeries I’ll have scars, but I don’t care about the scars. I’ll wear them with pride, like a badge of honor.
You see, I can do something not many others can do. I can control fire, or at least I will once I get my powers under control. I’m still learning.
Being an Incendiary is rare, but being an incendiary with two of the three primary powers is unheard of. That’s why Operation Atlas is taking such good care of me. I’m one of their elite.

Today I am writing in the voice of Philip, a character in my upcoming novel, Fleeting Shadows.
What am I recovering from right now? Well, many things. I’m recovering from the blow to my pride from being killed by a sixteen year old, that was pretty embarrassing. I don’t know if it counts as recovering, but I’m adjusting to the afterlife pretty well. I was deemed “evil” so I have to keep the wound that killed me, it doesn’t hurt, it’s just a constant reminder of all the wrong I did in my life. What I’m really recovering from is Rylee’s death. She hadn’t spoken to me since I’d gotten through customs, so I’d been staying with my family. That was the only nice thing about being dead, I got to see my parents and brother again. My mother was the only person in my family who didn’t have her death wound, I wish she would’ve been around longer but I messed that up too. I couldn’t believe that I was responsible for Rylee’s death because of her traitorous little sister. I knew we shouldn’t have trusted Charlotte with a mission as important as the one we gave her, but I’d let Rylee talk me into it. I wish I could convince her to talk to me, although I don’t really know how I’d plead my case. “I didn’t mean to kill you, I meant to kill your little sister whom you love dearly,” yeah, don’t think that would go over too well. Maybe one day I’ll get her to talk to me again and then maybe I’ll be able to atone for what I’ve done. But until then, I guess this is what my life –or my afterlife– is.
