It’s my birthday this week!!

At some point in my life, I realized I get way more excited about birthdays than other people.

writing prompts

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…

Oh well!

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:

  1. Your fifteenth birthday—you may remember more than you expect.
  2. Imagine a character that either loves or hates birthdays. Write a scene from his or her point of view.
  3. Write about a birthday gift (real or fictional).
