This past week, I went to visit my daughter's family in another state. The anticipation of seeing my grandkids and spending time with all of them gave me something to look forward to. As the day to leave drew near, excitement mounted. When writing, we don't want to use phrases like "excitement mounted" because it is a "telling" statement. Instead, we want to show the emotion.
For today's writing prompt, write a scene involving a character excited about something. Let us feel the emotion build.
