Now, on to the prompt for the week -
For Today, we gave you a short challenge. Three fairly generic passive phrases. Your goal wass to make them active in a short scene, either fiction or non-fiction. You could choose one, two, or all three to play with, but you only had 100 words.
[he/she/I] was devastated by [...]
[feeling] was experienced by [...]
[person/thing] was possessed by [...]
I had to return to Emma, Kris and James in One Night in Dusseldorf for this one. It came in at 98 words.
As I weighed the options, something strange possessed me – a reckless, wild feeling. I didn’t care what anyone else thought. Kris offered me passage into an exciting, dangerous world. I didn’t know if I’d survive it. I didn’t care. And that wasn’t like me.
I think they knew that spirit possessed me. I saw it in the way they looked at me. It was as if they knew what it was, as if they knew the words hovering on the edge of my lips.
My heart pounding and hands shaking I replied, “Lead on. I’m seeing this through.”
