Freedom – Daily Writing Prompts

I always get a tad sensitive and emotional whenever the topic of freedom is discussed. Films that touch on slavery and colonization have always gutted me. To see God-given free will denied in exchange for blatant animosity is quite frankly horrifying.

I am fortunate enough not to have endured such malpractice firsthand. This is not to say that I am not aware of its effects. In my own country, and many years after independence, I still have to endure discrimination due to white privilege and racism, not to mention tribalism.

In light of this and more, I have come to one realization. Freedom must begin and end in the mind. As a Christian, this fundamental truth alters my worldview and allows me to handle the infringement of my free will starting with me, and with God’s help. As a creative, I use my platform to speak this out.

In a society wrought with so much bondage, we all crave freedom in one way or another. The first step towards getting it starts with us, in our thinking.

Happy Freedom Day

Today your characters will get the opportunity to speak out against infringement on their freedom and the fight to gain and preserve it.

In honor of Freedom Day, write an original story involving the following scenarios.

  1. Your character is a slave who risks their life to free their family.
  2. A freedom fighter campaigns for the rights of slaves despite death threats.
  3. The character in your story is a merchant who secretly smuggles runaway slaves by sea.
  4. A religious group sympathizer aids families turned refugees in a quest for freedom.
  5. A princess forced into marriage has to choose between her own safety and the freedom of her enslaved people.

Remember to use the tag ‘dailywitheli’ so that I can add your story to my word prompt hall of fame. You do not have to attempt all of the prompts. However, if and when inspiration strikes, do follow the muse.

For today’s prompt, we are tackling Flash Fiction. This is a story with 751 to 1500 words. Therefore, as always, try your best to stick within the confines of the word count.

Take time to stretch, walk, grab a drink of water, and get back to it.

All in all, have fun with today’s writing prompts. 

Until tomorrow,

Eli
