“What is it that you are absolutely sure you will never forget about being this age, and why have adults forgotten it?” – Amanda Mae Meyncke, who said this about the prompt: “Remembering what it’s like to be a kid is insanely profitable.

[This is a remake of an older prompt.]

This should probably be tomorrow’s writing prompt.

Tom Woodward tweeted about the picture that goes with this prompt and said that it’s “begging for use as a writing prompt.” I couldn’t agree more; there’s a lot of story potential in this picture.

I got an email asking about this one. It’s dense, but it makes for a good writing exercise. 

Also, I’d recommend checking out Telescopic Text and trying to use it for this activity.
