Did you participate in last week’s #WritingWednesday post? It was all about going back in time. 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,
- DON’T EDIT what you write! IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT!
The goal is 5 minutes of creativity.
Today, I’m writing in the voice of Tanja, a character in my current WIP.
Today’s writing prompt:
Describe the most beautiful sound you have ever heard
When a loved one dies, you don’t expect to hear there voice again. Sure, you might have recordings, home movies, or saved voicemails, but those aren’t the same. Over time, the recordings become distorted and grainy. Nothing can replace the sound of their voice as they sit across the table from you, sipping on tea and telling you about their life or even just their day.
My grandmother’s voice had been lost to me for over three years. Lost forever, as far as I knew. Only by a miracle was I able to speak to her again.
The miracle of my bloodline.
Some call it voodoo, others witchcraft, and still others call it the black arts or devil worship. It isn’t devil worship or the black arts. It isn’t voodoo, nor do we do anything to harm others. Maybe it is witchcraft, I’m not really sure. All I know is that it is a gift. Its a gift to me and to those I can help bring closure.
There is nothing like the sound of relief… joy… and comfort you hear from someone who is finally able to say goodbye to a loved one who was lost to soon.
