Sunday Scribblings #11 - Mystery

As a fiction reader I rely upon the belief that "all will be revealed in time." I like to know that the questions & secrets that keep you turning the pages will at last be unveiled and the story will fall together into a beautiful pattern of inevitabilty and symmetry and understanding. I will close the book KNOWING. But life makes no such promise, and I find myself getting frustrated about it! In life more often than not, mysteries stay mysteries. You have to make peace with not knowing. So my question is, if you could have ANY mystery unveiled for you, what would it be? It can be cosmic, personal, political, whatever. What deep unanswered or even unanswerable question would you want to have revealed for your eyes only? What do you dearly want to KNOW? Also, if you want, what would your prefer never to know? What would best remain a mystery?

And if you find yourself stumped, you can always just use the word "mystery" as a free-writing prompt. To me it's a word with many shades of meaning, a delicious, eerie word.

To any newcomers (welcome), just write your response to the above and post your permalink in the comments box below. Have fun!

I chose to do some creative writing today under the theme of Mystery. Am still a bit wary of leaving my writing skills (or lack thereof) to the public, but there is a first time for everything.

Thanks for the prompts, everyone.

My first ever Sunday Scribble (except it is wednesday at a very early hour). I found it fun. And it is a good way to do some creative writing, since my creative writing blog has been a little lonely since february, and it's june already.
