Week 33 – #WritingWednesday #writingprompt Challenge

Today is the 33rd 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,

The goal is 5 minutes of creativity.

 Today I am writing in the voice of Phoebe, the main character in PURSUIT (Book 4 in the Blood Angel Series)… BONUS – She also makes an appearance in my upcoming novel The Beast Within!

Today’s writing prompt:

Do you have a tattoo? What is it and why did you get it?

I’m a tracker. I work for the High Council. Unlike most trackers, I wasn’t born with the blood. My sister was; she was naturally talented. I had to learn the skill, through the taking of the blood ritual. To be honest, blood tastes disgusting. The first time I tried it, I nearly vomited. But that isn’t want you want to know about. You asked about my tattoos. Yes, I have them. Many, in fact.

Most are runes. They are mostly along my arms, but I have a few on my back and my upper thighs. They help protect me from the evils I encounter while I’m hunting. They also help remind me of my roots, where I came from and where, someday, I might return.

In my family, I was always the most artistically inclined. That earned me the privilege of branding those that came after me with our family’s mark. I won’t share that with you, but I will tell you this; there is power in my bloodline and those that recognize the mark respect it. It gives me strength and courage. Its my moral compass.

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

    I have a few tattoos already. Most of them are cute dainty ones that hold no significance. There’s one, however, that means a lot to me. It’s one of my bigger tattoos and it’s between my shoulder blades. It’s a tattoo of the Wings of Salvator’s Spy insignia with a rune of protection around it. Witches that know how to do runes are few and far between, but Rylee managed to find me one when I got accepted into the Wings of Salvator. We both knew that it probably wouldn’t do anything more than protect me from a few surface level wounds, but I got that tattoo anyways. Now that my sister is gone, it holds so much more significance. I think that Witch knew what she was doing. I think that rune did protect me, but it was at such a cost. The night my sister was killed, I tried to carve it out of my back. I knew, deep down, that rune had been the reason she was there to save me. I’m glad I failed miserably at removing it because it is now my daily reminder that my sister loved me so much that she was willing to sacrifice herself for me. I’m lucky to have known love like that.
