Prompt 50 Grim Determination


Kyle Thompson

Today’s prompt is grim determination.


Here are some ideas to contemplate (you are not limited to my suggestions)


A solider sacrificing himself for his country

A hero sacrificing herself for the good of mankind

An adventurer sacrificing their life for the sake of a quest

A martyr sacrificing himself for his ideals

A widow packing up the belongings of a deceased spouse

Making the decision to care for someone who needs full-time assistance

Accepting a responsibility that was forced on you such as taking over the family business
