This Week’s Theme is: Anticipation

This morning I had an interview for a job that would relieve so much anxiety and worry in my day-to-day life. Problem is… I haven’t been on an interview in MANY years! My emotions were running wild as my heart beat faster with every step toward my interview destination. I was scared, nervous, excited, and drained all at once. For the most part though… I was anticipating what was to come. I was daydreaming about the possibilities this job could have in store for me if I was to get it. I was predicting how much my life would improve with this new journey.

I was anticipating happiness…

Is there something in your life that you are anticipating the arrival or ending of? What emotions do you experience or what actions do you take while in the state of anticipation?

Maybe the characters in your story are expecting or predicting a major event to happen… perhaps a plot turner?
