Sometimes its hard to let things go. Whether its a fear, a worry, a past hurt, a hope, a goal, or a dream it can be very difficult to release our grip on things and move one. This can be a good thing sometimes. It keeps us from giving up, it helps us to persevere through trials and pain to reach a goal that, at first, seemed entirely out of reach. Sometimes, it can be a very bad thing. It can keep us trapped in a pointless circle, hurt us, and/or hurt others. Either way, letting go of something is generally hard, and some people are better at it than others. Some people are too good at it and they let go too quickly. But as hard as it is to let something go, what can be even harder is knowing when to let go. When to stop pursuing a goal, when to give up on getting an apology, when you’ve passed caution and reached panic. These can all be very difficult things to identify, but its important that we do our best to identify them. Anyway, enough of my meandering, I have a scene challenge for you. So, if you don’t already know the rules: I give you a prompt and you write a scene off of it. Try to keep your scene under five hundred words, and try to keep it in the same tone as the introduction. If I give a line that is very dark and depressing, then I don’t want to see a scene about a drunken monkey in a tutu…it just doesn’t fit. If I do give you a line about a drunken monkey in a tutu, then you should probably try for a funny scene.
Your prompt: “I said let go, damn it…”
P.S. I want to apologize for the missed post yesterday. There was a last minute schedule change, things got mixed up, and everyone thought they posted when they were supposed to.
