I signed up for Tara-Nicholle’s 10 days writing challenge. I honestly don’t know if I will go through with it but I am optimistic.
This is my third attempt at participating in a writing challenge. I did pretty well in my first challenge which lasted for 30 days. I quit my second challenge after day one. And here I am attempting my third challenge.
I feel I may do better this time because I am publishing it here. So the fun thing about this challenge is that she is going to send the writing prompts every day via email. So we have no idea what tomorrow’s prompt will be.
Today’s prompt is inspired by Danaerys Targaryen in the movie “Game of Thrones” For those who haven’t watched a single episode let me do a quick summary.
One of the main characters of the show is a young lady, a Queen, named Daenerys Targaryen. She comes from a long line of rulers. But her ancestors were not well-loved. Her own dad was in fact torturous and murderous. And she is on a mission to break that cycle; to still walk in her regal ancestry, but to be a queen that liberates, instead of imprisoning and rules with freedom rather than fear.
So she does that. She frees these folks over here, that tribe of eunuchs over there. And everytime she does some great feat and wins hearts of a nation or tribe, she integrates that win, that truth about herself, into her identity. I mean this literally: she introduces herself with her name followed by a long list of clauses that detail her feat and describe who she is— and wants others to know she is — at her essence, now, constantly updating her name as she lives and evolves.
Her name goes like this: “Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Lady Regnant of the Seven Kingdoms, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons.”
So from the context, I need to come up with my game name that shows my feats, truth and identity.
I am Gloria of the House Unamka, the first of Her name, The Non-conformist, Queen to King Henry, Khaleesi of the Great Okwelle Kingdom, Protector of wildlife and the environment, Lady Regnant of my seven cutest niblings, Great teacher, sister and daughter, Lover of adventures and cornflakes.
So there you have it, my game name!
