This weekend was my birthday, and a very nice birthday it was. On Saturday, my husband and I went out to lunch with our younger son. The restaurant where we ate decorates it’s wall with plaques containing rhymes, quotes, and other thought-provoking or food-celebrating sayings.
Across from our table was a plaque that read:
- If you didn’t know how old you are, how old would you say you are?
Hmmm? Pretty apt for a birthday lunch.
Now, I’m not going to tell you how old I am or how I’d reply, but I couldn’t help thinking that was a darn good writing prompt. How old would you say you are? Why? Write about it.
Writing fiction? Choose a character you are still trying to figure out and ask him/her the question and demand an explanation.
If you feel like sharing your responses, please reply. Maybe you will even tempt me to share my response with you!
