There is so much to write, so much to capture.
That couple by the side-walk… How the girl’s eyes waiver as this other guy passes by…
Oooh, I should write about the old man from the cafe, should he be happy or grumpy?
Wow, look at the shape of the cloud! Almost like a dragon! Perhaps, I could spin something Game of Thrones like?
Maybe a historical drama inspired from the Victorian times… or Greek Mythology?
Even Fantasy is nice, vampires and damsels… Teen drama maybe…
I want to write something that’s never been written before… like JK Rowling!
This is my fourth entry for Voice Week 2014. I tried to get in the mind of the girl herself this time.
Voice week is a writing challenge hosted by Stephanie of BekindRewrite to experiment with different voices.
There will be 5 installments coming, one each day, from Sep 22nd to Sep 27th.

She’s a little scattered, noticing everything yet focusing on nothing
Hahaha, something that’s never been written before!!! That’s so adorably naive. Sadly, as a writer, I can relate.
Oh, the endless struggle. Well, I suppose the nature of writing is to bear out humanity’s struggles, but I still felt this one especially deep 😉
I’m sure all writers would nod along to this voice. It was rather sweet — hopeful, ambitious, scattered and brave. Nicely done.
You are writing to a bunch of writers – how well you know us, coming from within our ranks. She is completely diferent from the other characters; lighter and unfocused, seeing everything nd nothing.
Great insight is given into the girl. ADHD springs to mind. So many thoughts all at once and none sticking long enough to put the pen to the paper. I love her optimism.
This girl is definitely a writer and a big reader. Young perhaps? Good piece!

Ah, we finally get something from the girl’s viewpoint! She seems young and eager. A little naive, but endearing for it.
yeah, eager…naive… you got it right 🙂
