Every Tuesday I post a writing prompt and my response. It gives me a chance to exercise my writing muscles outside of my WIP, and hopefully inspire you to write. So enjoy my flash fiction piece and post your own in the comments!
Finish this thought: "I didn't go to ____ looking for redemption, but somehow I found it."
I didn't go to Mars looking for redemption, but somehow I found it. Somewhere among the bio-domes and transport tunnels, the rolling red landscape and hazy sky - I found redemption. Not release, not forgiveness, not an escape from my past, but redemption. A chance to leave the person that I was behind and move forward with a new life free of the consequences of the past.
Mars gave me my new horizon. I cannot abandon her now.
