Writing Prompt – don’t figure it out

The prompt to end all prompts. Don’t bother trying to figure it out.

Where you’re going or what your pay dirt will turn out to be. Too much depends on stuff that’s way over the horizon, beyond your line of sight and your understanding.

In a million years I couldn’t have imagined ending up where I am now. More than improbable, it was impossible—until it happened. Then it was, okay, well I didn’t quite expect to end up here but this is where I am–so be it. And the unexpected is half the joy of it. So let it happen. If you try to force it, you’ll make it go away. If you attempt to imagine it, you’ll get it wrong. So put the figure it out away and do you the know what. Give you a clue, it has five letters, okay?
