For me, it's been very freeing not to have to think about things like plot and character arcs. This is just 250 to tell a story - whatever story - that first pops into your brain. It's fun, and so I thought we'd give it a try over here.
Who wants to play? I'll give you a sentence and a picture. Feel free to use either or both -- and leave me your creative writing in the comments. I love to see how the Muse can strike everyone so differently.
Sentence ~ Use this quote from Jean-Paul Sarte:
|“Life has no meaning the moment you lose the illusion of being eternal.”|
The baked and barren earth beneath my feet didn't feel half as dry as my heart. There used to be a time when my life was like Spring. My eyes unfurled to the morning sunlight like blossoming petals. My senses were crisp and alive and warm in a subtly cool way. My blood raged like a cresting river, fat and over-full on music.
Where once our violins had sung together, fevered and entranced, now mine whispered alone. Since you left, doing anything more than caressing the strings has shredded me. I want to play again. I want my music to light me up again like a Spring afternoon and fill me with the warmth of tulips and cherry blossoms. But everything now is darkness.
Dark in my soul. Dark when I close my eyes. Dark filling my ears.
Perhaps it's because I know there's no coming back from where you've gone. My only consolation is that one day I will join you there. Funny how life has no meaning the moment you lose the illusion of being eternal.
