A Storybook Day – prompt for the Daily Post

A Storybook Day

You have to spend one day as or with your favorite fictional character. Which one would it be and what would you do?


The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz

I would be the witches of Oz. Both the wicked witch and the Good Witch! Because that is what it would be like to be in my head.  One minute good and one minute bad.

As the wicked witch I visit her somber castle and dress dark and ugly like her and chase Dorothy and her friends through the forest. (my depression side)

And as Glinda, the good witch I would be beautiful and carry a glittery wand and I would protect Dorothy and her friends from the wicked witch. (the manic side)

And when Dorothy finally gets to Oz she finds there is no real wizard and there’s no place like home. (but I don’t have a home, I am either the wicked witch or Glinda the good witch. Or the stable side of me can be the wizard and his false demeanor because stable is not the real me. It is an illusion til the next witch takes over)

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    Here is a prompt I wrote that uses fictional characters to show what a day in my head is like.
