Writing Wednesday | Prompt 11

Hey guys! I've been waiting for Wednesday all week because I am so excited to do another prompt with you all. I've come to love our beloved writing Wednesday. Nanowrimo is about a week away so to get ready, do some prompts. Here is today's....

My Response...

A year and two months ago my life changed.
Before it, I was this happy go-lucky teen, ready to take on the world.
Change happens so fast.
Don’t believe what everyone tells you; “Take your time,” “You have a lifetime.”
Even though, I knew once I left high school my life would be different, I didn’t expect it to be so drastic.
For years I told myself I wouldn’t fall into the traps my classmates had.
Go figure.
Here I am turning 19 and I don’t even know what I like anymore.
I used to be into horseback riding and slumber parties and now it’s all parties, drinking and smoking.
Just yesterday, I could barely get through class without the constant cravings.
Killing me slowly is the nicotine rush that swims through my veins, begging for more.
Love is a distant memory since all I love now is my next high and I just ditch that one for the next.
Maybe it was always supposed to be this way.
Not that I had a plan before, but I did have dreams.
Only my closest friends know that, though and they’re all long gone.
People now see me as this party girl, looking for a good time and a place to hang out.
Quitting is too far away for me to reach to.
Really, I don’t want to stop.
Stopping would mean feeling and I’m not ready for it.
Time is running out and in my last breaths all I can think of my broken soul crumbling inside me.
Until now, it was a joke, an excuse to act my age and live without responsibilities.
Veering off the road was a mistake.
Willing myself to just die here already and end my torment was choice.
X marks the spot and it should be my grave that I lay in now.
Yet as the ambulance lights flash in the distance I know I’ll be saved and brought back into a black, heartless, dog eat dog world.

Zero hour.

  1. I've used this prompt before, it's a great way to challenge your mind and really get you in the mood for writing.

  2. I've never heard of this prompt, ever. You did a fantastic job. I don't like writing with really strict parameters like that, so I admire anyone who does it so well. Maybe I'll try it out!

    1. I HATE writing where I have to do certain things. I thought I would struggle with this but it was actually kind of liberating. You should at least try :)


Tell me what you think!
