Day 365 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Write about what happens after your character reaches their goal.
Shannon: Know what sucks about reaching a goal? You spend all your time waiting to reach it, but once you get there it’s kind of sad. For a second you wish you could go back, and at the same time you really don’t want to, and you know you can’t. You’ve got to move on even though it’s hard. Even though you don’t know if the next thing will be better. You can only hope.
Erin: Once I finally had what I wanted I already had new goals in my head that were taking over. There was a part of that reality that was unhealthy. However that was how I would grow, was why I was who I was. Life without a harder to reach goal was hopeless. Because there was no hope for anything, just happiness with what already became average in the eye of the beholder. I would never be fully happy, which made me a little happy.
You’re character has finally made it, you have finally made it!
