Here she was again...back at the same tree she'd stood under ten years earlier, still dreaming about a future she had no clue what she wanted for. Young, and starry eyed, she'd been about to get what she'd wanted for as long as she could remember - to get out of this town, and on to something which she could only imagine was so much bigger and better than what she'd always known. She'd been so ready for a change, after 18 years of the same things and people every day. But didn't everyone want change at that age? Wasn't that what they all spent their lives dreaming about from the time they first realized that change was an option? And in the end, when she finally got what she'd spent so long working towards...it wasn't at all what she'd written in her letters about. The letters which she was now here to dig up and read, as her 18-year-old self's 28th birthday present.
Hey friends! So it's Wednesday, and therefore my third attempt at Write on Wednesday! The prompt this week was a photo of a tree, and the command to write whatever came to mind when looking at that photo. (the photo above is mine - not the prompt photo!) I thought, originally, of myself and a trail near my home. Of course...the story ended up being nothing to do with me, but it got me started. I'm not terribly happy with the end result, but it got me writing, and that was the point. So in my mind, a mission accomplished! (Although now that I'm thinking about it, I'm considering other options I could have had with the prompt... hmm, an idea to pursue?)
So how were your Wednesdays, friends? Did you participate in WoW, or did you write about something else you'd love to share?
