Writing Prompt: Longing

Hello, fellow creative juice seekers! You may have noticed I disappeared for several months. The truth is I let the longing for a significant upcoming date (April 7, 2014) put my life on hold. Yesterday I realized…I will always feel longing, and instead of counting down until that date, I need to cherish each day as it comes.

With that introduction, I invite you now to write about one of your characters. What is he or she longing for? How is this deep longing affecting your character in the present? How would your character’s life change by letting go of this longing?
