Do you have illusions of grandeur? Do you see yourself as the
CEO of a company? Do you imagine yourself inventing a computer application that you then sell for a million dollars?
At what point do these dreams cease to be achievable and fall into the realm of illusions?
Your task is to think of something that your character hopes to achieve. Make it far beyond what might possibly happen based upon your character’s skill set.
Write the story that speaks about that illusion. Perhaps she achieves it, perhaps she doesn’t. The readers will want to see what she does, hear what she says, feel her emotions all along the path.
Have fun with this one.
