I couldn’t find any writing prompts for this month’s #NaBloPoMo. I have all sorts of ideas and drafts but I wanted to see what prompts were out there for today. Last year’s November 3rd #NaBloPoMo writing prompt was this:
What did you think was the coolest job in the world when you were younger? Do you still feel that way now?
This prompt immediately reminded me of a project I did in 5th grade. The project was to write about our past, present and future. A sort of 10 year old’s biography and future hopes and dreams. Except…I was a very practical child. While I always loved the arts, I knew that making a living from them was practically impossible. I dreamed of a life where I could pursue what made me happy in the off hours, not in the on hours. So I wanted something that would pay the bills but not require blood, sweat and tears (read = overtime). I never wanted my job to define who I was. I craved adventure more than anything.
But don’t take my word for it. Read it from my 10 year old self. 😂
Wait for it…
