Day 107 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Write about a situation that is becoming repetitive.
Erin: My boyfriend gets up every day at 8 am.
Then he takes a dump.
Next, he brushes his teeth.
He comes back to bed.
Kisses me once.
Goes back to the bathroom to shower.
After that he goes into his closet and grabs whatever shirt is next in his rotation.
He ties his left shoe first.
He puts his belt on last.
He already packed his lunch before bed.
He takes his coffee in a to go cup.
I start to feel like I am in a reoccurring nightmare.
Tomorrow morning is going to be different.
I’m going to make myself his ex-girlfriend.
Shannon: There was another bowl on the kitchen counter. At this rate we’d run out of Tupperware before we’d run out of baked goods. I picked up the lid with enough hesitation you’d think an animal was about to pop out. “Cookies,” I grumbled. We were drowning in Daisy’s desserts. This week alone we had cake, cheesecake, cupcakes, muffins, frozen bars, and now cookies. She broke up with her boyfriend, and suddenly she needed somewhere else to put all of her focus. It was a pattern, one that was destroying our clean kitchen. Why couldn’t her new obsession be cleaning?
Another day, more writing. Your repetition is positive, how about your character’s?
