#3 - When We Were Wee

Here's our third writing prompt: When we were wee...

Reading the collection of writings thus far has been such an amazing experience. I admit that starting this site, my own primary interest was in getting my hand moving, doing simple, non-precious writing exercises. But already it's so much more than that. The way the previous two prompts shaped up, we learned first about our fellow writers' hopes and dreams, and next about their "real lives," and I felt, reading them collectively, that there's no better way of getting to know each other than this! So, inspired by my own recent reach into my childhood, I thought it would be neat to read about YOUR childhoods, too. Of course, you may interpret the prompt any way you choose. I hope you have fun, both writing it and reading all the others!

Also, to answer the concerns of some non-blogger-users about the difficulty of leaving comments on some blogger sites, the simplest thing to do would be to start a blogger account. You don't have to post a blog, just a basic profile page. You don't even need to fill out the profile page. See this example (note that you can put a link to your real blog under the contact section). It's free and should only take a minute or two to set up and then you'll be good to go.

Remember, just post a comment here with your permalink and we'll add you to the list. Have fun!

I'm not normally one for racing ahead, but Saturday seems a better day for me to be scribbling - so I've just posted my piece.

After reading the sunday scribbles for the past couple of weeks, inspiration finally hit for this one - on SATURDAY. Well, when the pen wants to move etc. etc. I loved doing this. Thanks so much for this prompt.
