Guest Blogger Becca Lawton’s post “Write As If You Were Dying” got me to thinking about how we spend our days. Most of our days are filled with things we have to do, accomplishing what needs to get done to pay bills, buy food, do the laundry, chores, clean whatever needs cleaning, and so on.
What if, one day next week you could do anything you want. What would it be?
This is different from Prompt #164, “Write About A Perfect Day” where money and restrictions are not a factor.
For this writing, be realistic, what could you do in a day that would be fun and something you could afford?
This might be challenging for you . . . all the more reason to make the effort to sit down and Just Write.
Okay, so what if that type of writing sounds like no fun at all and you might have to research if places are open, what the cost is, etc.
What if you want to go on a flight of fantasy and write about it? What if you had a magic carpet that could take you anywhere?
Write about an ideal day where money and time constraints don’t matter. You can do anything and everything you want. Distance and time do not matter. This is your Magical Day. What would you do?
Whether writing about something you can realistically do or something that is total fantasy: Write about your ideal day from beginning to end.
