Daily Prompt: Describe the scenario where a discarded paper changes your life.
I have been pondering today’s daily prompt about a piece of paper changing my life. What could possibly be written on a discarded paper that would change my life? I have come up with a few quick ideas.
It’s a clue to a murder mystery that I follow and become engulfed into the dark side of the city. I become obsessed and devote my life to solving the crime. (Sounds like a fun book but not realistic for me.)
It is the winning lottery ticket! Whoot! Whoot! I really don’t think that would change my life all that much. I would make some improvements to my house and totally send my kids to an Ivy League college but other than that I am pretty happy with my life, so money really would only make it easier.
It’s a note addressed to me from a stalker. I spend the rest of my days in fear and constant change trying to hide from the creeper who keeps finding me! (Ugh! Another good book but too sad and scary for me.)
Scenario four (My favorite):
It’s a note from my future self, asking to meet. I go and find out that I must complete my novel and change the world but there are evil cyborgs trying to stop me from an alternate universe! (This one sounds fun but it is also the story from Terminator applied to me!)
