WonHundred Word Wednesday: Follow Your Heart

The writing prompt for this week is: “That’s what happens when you follow your heart.”


The light surrounding the old abandoned warehouse had burned out years ago.  The once thriving logging town was quiet and desolate—much like it’s population.

Jessie wondered to herself if she should be meeting anyone this late at night. But she so wanted to get out of this ruined town. Her best friend Sam warned her time and again not to follow her heart. This time it could be dangerous.

As she slipped into the driver’s seat of her beat-up Ford truck, Jessie felt a sense of sadness. Her mother lay asleep in the house. Would she ever see her again?


Check out the other great stories! And come back each Wednesday for a new prompt.

      Thanks Jessica. I didn’t intend for sadness but that is what came out. Funny how that works when the words just take over like that!

    Oh I love the setting – so much wrapped up in such a small package. And it sounds like the beginning to an adventure! (Sad for her mom though)

    I definitely want to know more! Who is she meeting? will it get her into trouble like Sam thinks? WILL she ever see her mother again? Love how much you have wrapped up in this and really want to read more.

      I think we have a lot of short stories that we could write from these prompts. I wonder who she is meeting as well and if he is dangerous or not. Thank you for reading. I need to make my rounds now.

What are your thoughts?
