What do you want out of life? What do you long for, strive for, hope to accomplish, etc? Do you want to change the world, change someone’s life, be a good parent, discover something amazing, find a wife, or finally beat Demon Souls 2? What is it that you have set, or want to set as a goal for your life? And how do you intend to go about achieving it? Personally, I want to earn a Ph.D., be a good husband and father, get a second black belt, open the minds of students, and be a glorify God, not necessarily in that order of importance. I want you to think about your goals, because that is your topic for today. So, you know the rules. Take your subject and run with it. Write me a story of 1000 words or less and stay on topic. As before, if it’s in any way applicable, you should use this to try to develop your world a little more :).
Your Challenge: Write me a story about goals. This could be a story that seeks to express how painful the process of achieving a goal can be, or it could be a story the joy of finally meeting a goal that you’ve pursued for a long time, or it could be about how to set goals in the first place. You could focus on the a story that illustrates the importance of goals, or you could try to show what pursuing a goal practically looks like, or how goals can be used to manipulate someone. In some way though, your story needs to have a strong focus on goals.
