#86 - "Misspent Youth"

Did you "mis-spend" your youth? What kind of kid were you? Worrisome to your folks? Mature beyond your years? Wild? Shy? How did you spend you time? Out of curiosity, how many of you knew "what you wanted to be when you grew up" and accomplished it? How many times did you change your mind? Do you think your kid self would approve of you now?

Of course, if you prefer, write a fiction piece or write about somebody else's misspent youth. As you wish!

I do ask, however, that your post be somewhat in response to the prompt. Now that "Mr. Linky" is on the job, it's sort of an honor system! I am a BIG fan of Mr. Linky after last week -- I think he worked great and I'm glad you guys all get to see your links go up immediately instead of waiting for me or Meg to do it! Cheers!

It's good to be back, I've been away the past few weeks.

I hope it's okay that I linked to a piece I wrote (and posted) a few months ago, but it fits the prompt perfectly.

Mine is a little out there this week. It is about the misspent youth of a famous musical sidekick.

Oh, that Mister Linky's so great! Hope it makes life easier for you two, Laini & Megg. Couldn't resist the prompt, but just wrote a 5-minute burst. Barely scratched the surface of a rich vein of material in this topic. Thank you!

This was my first SS post - what a wonderful exercise. Childhood, though it's painful for most people, is also sort of a safe place for writing. Hindsight clarifies the details, whereas in real adult life, it's difficult to get that kind of clarity. This was a great prompt. Looking forward to posting on the idea of a "walk"...another great idea...
