Writing Prompt #18: If I Were . . .
I sometimes wonder what I would do if, for some reason or other, I was cursed by an evil wizard and woke up as a dragon. Naturally, there would be a way to break the curse.
Here’s where things get interesting.
I imagine I would never want to break the curse because I was a motherf**king dragon, yo!
I could scorch the earth and eat cattle and fly so high and grab the moon in my claws. I could kidnap princesses. I wouldn’t, though because they are too whiny. But I might keep a hobbit as a pet. Maybe two.
I’d befriend dwarves and start a gambling ring for goats or something. I’d shun the uppity elves unless they made me cookies in a tree all day.
If I were a dragon, I’d fly across oceans and make love to dolphins and merfolk.
If I were a dragon I would be in love with myself so hard. But I’d be way smarter than Narcissus. No drowning in my own reflection.
I would LOVE to wake up as a dragon. So, screw you evil, incompetent wizard!
My imagination soars just as high as I would if I were a dragon.
For this prompt, I want to try something a little different. I would like you to start your story with, "If I were . . ." and fill in the blanks. Go wild. Imagine you are something completely different to what you actually are. It can be anything.
If I were a man/woman
If I were an animal
If I were rich
If I were American
If I were a prisoner
If I were cheese
If I were a dollar bill
If I were a cryptocurrency
If I were in love
If I were a tree
If I were a computer program
You get the idea. It doesn't matter at all what you choose as long as it is different to your real self.
And afterward, I'd love you to challenge some people who aren't yet involved in PromptlyJonica or some people who read the prompt stories but haven't written for our community. Make sure to include our rules.
