Central theme of your writing piece for the day:

Ace of Fire urges you to take risks in order to follow your dreams because exciting new opportunities are headed your way.

Go do it!

Possible career advancement is indicated as well.

Writing Focus:

Your character feels a bit hesitant for a second, but the Ace of Fire appears and urges your character to jump in feet first.  Risks can be good.  Risks can be bad.  However, in this case — the risks are good.

One specific example, is a friend of mine was not sure if she should pursue a new career.  After much thought, I encouraged her to pull a card.  She pulled the Ace of Fire.  All systems were a go.  She went ahead and took a professional development course  that she wanted to take for a while.  Now, keep in mind — she was so scared during the course of the “taking risk” portion of her journey.

The beautiful part is the ending  — At the PD course, she met someone there that would catapult her career to the next level.

Your main focus today is to find some way to create a scene for your character to take a big risk, and have everything work out in his or her favor!

I Dare You To Take Action Prompt:

Go into a coffee shop or an outdoor shopping area.  Find someone new to sit by and start engaging in a conversation.  Let them know you are a writer and you’re doing a bit of research.  You want to know what when they took a risk and how it felt for them.

Interact with 3 different people today and listen to their stories.  You’ll be amazed at what you will learn.

After you collect your information, journal your experiences or incorporate some of the gems into your rough draft.
