WWP #250 – Mannequin

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.  Thank you, Sammi, for hosting this challenge!

She sat, gazing at the squalling snow outside her window and wondered how she had found herself here. Again. Why did she allow another to dictate how to live her life? How she should love? Or not love?  She was her own woman, with thoughts, dreams and desires.  She was not some mindless mannequin to be taken out and arranged just so to another’s way of seeing things only to be stored into a closet when no longer desired.  It was time to break free.

    Now you’re cooking with mercury! Although that mannequin reminds me of some rather forgettable trysts in which I really through I might lose my soul. Or . . . maybe . . . I did? Nah, I would . . . know it, right?

    You’ve merged passion with purpose, soul with sexy and have (once again! Second time in a few days now, thank you snow!) created a piece of writing to behold.

  2. Dale…wonderful. I’m assuming that’s a picture of you. If it is, FRAME IT and hang it where you can see it everyday and then do a little dance and eat french fries, followed by ice cream, because you’re so happy to be free.

    • Thank you, Gigi. And gosh no! That is a from the Cézanne exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts! However… I do like the rest of your phrase 😉


  3. Sweet write dear Dale! ⚡️💥
    Breaking free is a milestone in a person’s life.
    My mannequin, Judy, hasn’t seen the inside of a closet for 10 years.
    Wish I could say the same for myself! xo
