365 days Writing Prompt: Might as well jump
What’s the biggest risk you’d like to take—but haven’t been able to? What would have to happen to make you comfortable taking it?
The biggest risk I’d like to take is to write a fiction, where the characters would resemble my family members i.e my siblings. The reason I haven’t tried it yet, because I’m not sure it’ll go over very well.
Everyday I come close to writing it, my inner voice keeps warning me, “Not a good idea,write something else.”
But something else cannot be as interesting as my siblings, when my mom was fed up with us, she’d always say, “How did you turn out to be so different from each other?”
During those days we actually got along with each other, we helped, we shared, we were not selfish.Today we are so different, it’s amazing.
Nothing can happen to make me comfortable taking this risk!
Thank you for sharing this post. All success exists on the other side of risk. Go for it!
All good wishes,
Thank you Robert,but I’m not sure you’d like this particular fiction. Let me see, how
I’ll do it holding on to every one’s interest.
Look forward to reading your work, Ranu. “Doubt has killed more dreams than failure ever will”
Hi Sonya , you’d be interested, I’ll have to see what I can do about it.
I can understand your hesitation. Even with fiction, family is so personal so we must be careful what is revealed. (I write very little taken from my family so it wouldn’t be fair to encourage you take a leap I won’t even try 🙂 )
I did think but I wrote this prompt to make sure my contribution is there, not my story though.
Thank Janna for your advice I appreciate it.
Many people write about the people in their lives even if they do it unconsciously. It’s a point of reference. you are such a good story teller I think it would be an engaging and poignant story.
Thank you Leslie for believing in me.
