Writing prompt #5: Write about the in-between
Who else is uncomfortably lodged between the present and anticipatory hindsight? Who finds themselves looking, occasionally — perhaps too little and sometimes too often — at the world’s problems? Who else is calculating, calibrating their actions to reactions they’re falsely, almost, not quite, but surely certain of. Write about your refreshed perspective on nowadays. Write about the in-between.
