Writing 101: A Story In A Single Image

unsplash_5263607dd1bfc_1Let’s get away just me and you.
We’ll see all the things we’ve ever wanted to see and do all the things we’ve ever wanted to do.
Let’s live blissfully unattached, committed to no ones clock and bound by no ones dollar.
We’ll take pictures that we won’t post, and have thoughts that we won’t tweet.
We’ll see the sunrise in the mountains and the sunset in the desert.
Spend our winters by the beach and our summers by the bay.
If a life is a journey then let’s begin it.
Just forget the world and what they’re trying to sell us, they’ll bleed our pockets and our souls dry.

A Fun Prompt

Prompt: Give a personality to each day of the week.

Sunday is the most hopeful person I know. She is filled with hope and peace. She wholeheartedly believes there is nothing a little rest can’t solve. Sunday is the responsible friend who looks out for me. She’s the friend my parents really like. She’s a lifetime sister. Now Monday is very different story. Monday is one of those people who you wonder if he ever smiles. His disdain for life and constant frown says no, probably not. Sometimes I wonder what’s going on deep inside of him to make him so unpleasant. Nobody likes him and that makes me sad for him. I do admit though I have a few times thrown an unkind word toward him. Tuesday is a more polite version of Monday. He’s still very reserved and somewhat of a mystery. Tuesday could be in the same room as you and you wouldn’t even know he was there. He skirts by in life completely unnoticed. And I think he likes it that way. Wednesday is what I call a “good vibes girl.” She’s so positive that she could be literally standing in the cold rain and still find a way to smile. I have never seen her having a bad day. Even Monday can’t be completely unaffected by her. Wednesday is the person you want to have around when things aren’t going well. If there is anyone who could see a silver lining, it’s going to be her. Thursday is a male version of Wednesday. He’s super positive but in a reserved Gandhi way. While Wednesday will force you to be happy because of her cheerful personality and great smile. Thursday will lay a firm hand on your shoulder and assure you that things will work out. Thursday exudes confidence and strength, he’s the kind of guy girls want to marry and other men want to be. Friday and Saturday are your go to girls for a good time. But its Friday you want to plan the event, and Saturday is the one you just want to show up. Saturday is what some people would call “flaky”. But when she does show, she takes the party to another level. Now Friday on the other hand will plan the party, show up, get it popping, and help clean up afterwards. She’s an all around dependable girl. The funny thing about Saturday is that she thinks she’s like Friday. Saturday can’t stick to a plan, it’s just not in her DNA. And her obliviousness to her own shortcomings makes her all the more lovable.
