This seems like an appropriate prompt: Take a few minutes to magine how things will be different for you this time next year. Now do the following steps: First, describe yourself, your successes and how you achieved them, then what new ambitions you will be deciding on based on what you have accomplished at the close of this year. Second, consider what it took to meet the goals and what had to be overcome. Finally, can this insight into change be applied to a character and rolled into a story?
While you're digesting that last question, consider what you need to do first to head in the direction of this possible future. Hey, why waste such useful thinking?
