What are Your Top Five Favorite Today Voice Prompts/Posts from the past year?
I’m really bad at picking between my favorite posts, so I had my wife pick hers.
I do a lot of short stories and I had quite a bit of fun writing this one. I felt a bit of a Robotech, Gundam suit thing with this story. It spilled onto the page and I kept going. I don’t know where some stories come from, but I truly enjoyed writing this one. I’d wanted to do a short story before on The Today Voice, but this was the first thing I came up with for this week and had to use it.
This is something I still wrestle with. Alcohol can become one of the things I want most when I get home or the thing that is farthest from my mind, but I know it’s always there waiting to sink its claws into me.
I honestly couldn’t come up with a question that I needed answered. In the last year I’ve found out who I can trust, who my friends are, who I am, what I should write, who my family is, what I should write and what I believe.
These things changed who I am and the way I think of myself like no other thing in the past year.
The jacket I bought with the first money I earned is always one of the things that is closet to me heart. The only reason is I felt more adult. I knew it was a big deal, but brushed it off anyway.
The things I’ve learned about being a man are innumerable, but the things that I’ve learned about myself is where I’ve made the greatest strides in who I am and who I let in my life.
I’ve enjoyed The Today Voice very much. I’ve learned a lot about myself this year, but that is for another post.
