Writing Prompt 28 : Masks and Mirrors

Prompt: If you were to publish a book about yourself, what will you title it?

Masks and Mirrors

It would be the story of a girl that  put on a lot of masks, the personalities of her favorite characters, who dealt with the turmoil in her life by following their actions. At the end of the story, she would realize that she doesn't need a mask, but a mirror. She would discover who she is and develop the confidence to be herself and be content with who she is. It would be a novel about letting go of the past, in more than just mind but in actions. Little by little and day by day, she would become the person she wanted to be and realize that she had the power to control her life all along.  She would learn that the only way to get over the past is to shape your own future. I would like to think the novel would be a powerful one, that would encourage other people to be themselves and appreciate who they are. Because it's not just the mindset that determines who you will be. It is also the path you choose for yourself. If you believe you can do something, then you can, but if you doubt yourself, you will fail. In order to let go of the masks, and situations from the past, the girl would learn all the things that she can do in the present moment. each present action would effect the girl's future, and the masks will become mirrors with each step she takes.
