"The eye is literally the mirror of the soul. So when eye implants became more and more popular, people began to change." Prompt from Nemin32
For my first Focus Friday, I thought I’d write something based on a prompt that caught my eye on Reddit. I’m a big fan of using prompts as writing exercises. If you ever need quick inspiration, check out https://m.reddit.com/r/WritingPrompts
I’m hoping this inspires you to complete your own exercise, maybe write a couple hundred more words of your latest novel, compose a haiku for all I care. As long as you’re putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard). Anything that gets you in the writing mindset is a beautiful thing.
Without further ado, my loose interpretation of the prompt is presented under the cut below. A fairly quick read that took only about an hour of my life to compose. Note that my interpretation is rather dark, for those who prefer lighter fiction.
