Writing Prompt #3: That’s what happens when you follow your heart

Written By: Jess - Apr• 09•14

This one turned out a little weird, but as always I had fun writing it. 🙂

1980075_10152308818175915_1368622903_oToday’s Writing Prompt:

“That’s what happens when you follow your heart.”

 My 100 Words:

She squatted down behind the bushes, her leg extended and jittering in place. With a furrowed brow she watched the log.

Inch forward like a slug or lunge like a big cat? She gnawed on her lip as she watched the small white wings attached to the red body pump slowly in place.

Like a cat!

She sprung from the bushes, her feet beating the ground as she dived for the small thing.

“No!” she said as it fluttered out of her reach.

A boy sighed behind her.

He shook his head. “That’s what happens when you follow your heart.”

  1. But if you never follow your heart, you’ll miss out on all the opportunities. Love that she tried.

    Aw, I like this. I feel like I got a real glimmer into the characters’ personalities.

  3. Miranda D Nelson says:

    I agree, I love that she tried, even though she missed, and she gave it her all. 🙂

  4. Alison says:

    Loved it! and I agree – trying and failing is much better than wondering. 🙂
