PROMPTuesday #119: A New You

For today, let’s pretend you’re ditching your current life. You’re taking off to a new town as a completely different person. Maybe you’re in the Witness Protection Program, maybe you’re just after a fresh start, maybe you’ve robbed a bank and are starting over, whatever it is…Where do you go? What is your name? What do you choose as an occupation?

 

Now, write a vignette highlighting yourself in this new location. Detail this vignette through dialogue with a townsperson, or a description of where you live, or why you ended up there.

 

Ready? Go!

 

Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.

    Oh…that requires a bit more talent than I currently possess. All I got is “Calgon! Take me away!!!” The end…

    I’d so run away today. I want to be ‘Blair’ and have dark hair and captivating green eyes. I would be an interior decorator and be surrounded by beautiful homes just on the outskirts of a large metropolis where I could enjoy the night life at a whims notice or skirt off to the lake and watch the sunset over a campside fire.

    My name would be Daisy Duke and I would live in a one horse town riding around with the good ol’ boys Luke and Bo. I’d spend my days running away from Boss Hog in my Confederate Flag Car….wait that would be too obvious!

    Are the kids coming with me or am I leaving them at home with Dad? ***TEARS***

    I’ll have to play along. Working on an idea for my blog.

    Can I ask to be anywhere but here, doing anything but this? Just “this” in general, not THIS as in visiting your blog and commenting.

    I want a reset button on my life. STAT!
