It’s my birthday this week!!
At some point in my life, I realized I get way more excited about birthdays than other people.
I love throwing parties and peer pressuring everyone to go.
I also may or may not have broken up with a couple of people whose gifts clearly demonstrated that they didn’t care about me (it’s not about the money, but the thoughtfulness, you know?). Hmm, maybe this is more of a quirky trait than a charming one…
I’m using my birthday as an excuse to write an easier blog post this week. It consists of writing prompts that are (obviously) inspired by birthdays.
Because I provided very little actual writing advice, I have three for you to try.
How do you feel about birthdays? Let us know in the comments.
Take fifteen minutes to write about one (or more) of the following:
- Your fifteenth birthday—you may remember more than you expect.
- Imagine a character that either loves or hates birthdays. Write a scene from his or her point of view.
- Write about a birthday gift (real or fictional).
