Clothing – Writing Wednesday

Did you participate in last week’s #WritingWednesday post? It was about Glass Houses. If you haven’t posted your response, click HERE so you can do that now. Then, make sure you check in here ~ every Wednesday ~ for the latest #WritingWednesday writing prompt! Now, back to today’s regularly scheduled post…

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 Sydney, a character in one of my current ‘WIP’ manuscripts.

Today’s writing prompt:

What do the clothes you are wearing right now say about you?

I’ve been in the hospital for a little over a month and its discharge day. It felt so good to toss that hospital gown on the floor and slip into my well-worn jeans. My handler at Operation Atlas had my clothes washed, he had to, they were covered in ash. To be honest, he wanted to throw them away but I wouldn’t let him. Every rip and every hole signify a job well done. I’ve earned those badges.

So to answer your question, what do the clothes I’m wearing say about me, that’s easy… They say I’m tough, courageous, and not someone you should mess with.

    What do the clothes you are wearing right now say about you?

    I am currently wearing a thin gray hoodie and blue checkered pajama pants. I never change out of my pajamas unless I have to leave the house. That is a luxury I was never afforded while living under the mountain and I take full advantage of it now. It mildly bothers my mom, but she understands that my mind is pretty much blown by normalcy. My life was anything but normal for the eleven years I spent tucked away in Nivali Territory. It’s truly normal now, I’m still one of the prophecy warriors after all. The only way I could summarize what I’m wearing right now says that I am happy.
