So, you have your first sentence or two from last week’s prompt written. Now what? Depending on the number of heartbeats you have remaining will determine how to proceed with this week’s prompt. Need a reminder? Ready? Here it is: What do you want to do in the time you have left? If this is feeling too personal for you, create a character that will take your place in the story. Perfectly fine.
There are many avenues of thought you could travel down with this prompt. Do you have a bucket list to accomplish? Places to go? People to see? Someone you need to forgive or be forgiven by? Volunteer work you never got around to doing before? Drive a Ferrari 150 mph? Gather your friends and family around you every chance you get? So. Many. Options.
Here is what I wrote for last week’s prompt:
Since my mom is currently 97 years young, I figure I should have quite a while to live, yet. With that in mind, here is my first sentence.
Before my heart beats its final lub dub, I want to find my purpose in life.
Now, moving forward from this sentence, it seems logical to yours truly to create a setting in which this search will take place. Keep it simple. This is a rough draft. Editing, revising, deleting, editing, adding, deleting will take place later. Maybe much later. That’s okay! Most importantly, just write the first sentence so you can jump on to the next and the next and the next. I’ll be back next week with my next few sentences to this story. Don’t forget to have fun with this!
