No Trust

Lisa had been led to believe that when her ailing rich uncle finally passed away, she would receive a trust fund until she reached the age of twenty-five. Whether it was because he died before he had a chance to place a restriction on her inheritance, or he never meant to in the first place, would never be known. All Lisa DID know was that in the space of a day she’d gone from packing her work lunches in brown paper bags, to being able to quit her job and live in luxury.

Although walking away from the daily grind at the office was tempting, she decided not to. Instead, she kept her job and bought a house on the posh side of town. Right next door to Roland, the flashiest, most eligible bachelor within a hundred miles. In Lisa’s opinion, it was the only drawback of the whole deal.

Author’s note: Until October the 31st, I’m going to try to use this space to create possible beginnings for my 2016 NaNoWriMo project. In the tags below, you’ll see the genre I’m considering for the above story. Feedback is welcome.

  1. Ooh, I’m definitely a fan of this story idea! Although from the sounds of it, it probably would suit best under the ‘Romance’ Genre. I think a ‘Suspense’ or ‘Thriller’ interpretation would be an interesting read, I’m not exactly sure about how this would be brought about. But, one thing’s for sure. I’d definitely like to find out!

    Good Luck for NaNoWriMo,

    • Thanks, Ainsworth. 🙂
      I agree, the “romance” trope fits the best, but it’s sooo predictable. I’d have to work hard to put a twist on it. And I love a good twist! 🙂
      Thanks for your good wishes on NaNo. Are you doing it too?

      • I’m not quite sure yet, I would like to say ‘yes’. But, I lack the story idea. Which is why I’ve decided to start doing these ‘Daily Prompts’ as I’m hoping there will be the potential for a good story idea somewhere.

        But, my thinking is that there could be a good story idea in one of my recent Daily Prompts titled ‘Candles’. So, I may very well be doing it this year…

        • The trick, for me, is not thinking about it too much. But it’s tough not to think when you’re trying to find an idea, isn’t it? 😛
          Ah, writers’ woes. 😉
          Best of luck with it, Ainsworth. 🙂

          • Ooh, I wonder how I’ll go about that. Do you have any tips? Writer’s woes, oh tell me about it! I’ve only just come back from a terrible writer’s block. But, what I’ve learnt is that you can’t have success without struggle! Hehe, but I will admit… I am having a little trouble with today’s prompt! 😔😔😔

          • The way I do it: Read the word of the day. The first sentence that pops into my head with the word in it, is what I use either as the theme of my story, or I use that sentence in the story.
            “Waiting” is a great word. How many things can one be waiting for? So then I’ll take it to the next level – what if? What if I was waiting for this and that happened? Then I start populating my story with people and objects.
            Once I have that much, I either let it stew in my mind for a while or I just start writing, and see what comes out.
            It’s getting that initial sentence and sticking with it that works for me. 🙂

          • Ooh, that’s very interesting. I’m going to try that and see what works, I just kind of let my mind drift and see where it leads me. Not the best technique, but still… I will be sure to let you know how I get on!

            Thanks for the wise words, and thanks for following my blog!
