Another writing prompt from MamaKat:
1.) If you could cut back on something in your life that takes up your time what would it be? And what would you prefer to spend that time doing?
(inspired by Lady Isra)
2.) Share a recent adventure you had with a friend.
(inspired by Amy)
3.) Describe a memorable gift. Why was it important to you?
(Inspired by Kit Kat)
4.) If you could change career paths now and be anything you wanted to be...what would you be and why?
(inspired by Lauren)
5.) Kim's email:
In the St. Louis News-Dispatch paper, they had an article of a man who wrote his own obituary before his death, and gave it to his sister to post when he died. He summed life up in 45 words:
"Aviator, Artist, Brother, Cousin, Uncle and Friend. He spoke frequently of one true love, and the family and friends he missed for the past 25 years. And of those who had judged him so harshly, how they can forever pucker up to his posterior."
I know it's a morbid subject, but what about a prompt about what would one's obit say, with a word limit. You could stipulate that everyone died at 100, so we'd all be predicting what our future would be like.
So there you have it. Sum up life in 45 words. :) Happy happy.

Since I inspired #5, I feel compelled to write about it:
What would my obit say, with a 45 word limit (excluding name, age, and funeral arrangements).
