Writing Prompt of the Day…Day 3 – Despair

If you look into the face of someone who is in despair, what do you see?

Are they crying? Do their eyes speak words that they can’t express through their pain? How do you know that it’s not just sadness but a deep despair instead?

Try and answer these questions in a short story of 1500 words or less. Try and understand what the character is going through, their thoughts, feelings, the physical symptoms of such a strong emotion, and most importantly, what has caused them to feel such despair.
