I’m going for easy peasy lemon squeezy today. Emphasis on “squeezy,” because I KNOW we’ve all got something squeezy to share for this one.
So think back to when you were 15. Let the year play itself back to you. Pick one memory — even if it’s just a mere moment that stands out — and write about it.
I want all the details. As for me, 15 is when I got my first tongue kiss. I’ll describe it in great detail a little later. But first: You do know I was a Catholic schoolgirl, right? And not the randy kind? Rather, the guilt-ridden argyle-sock-wearing type who sang church hymns for fun? Good. When I tell my story, it’ll be important that you know that.
Meanwhile, go to 15 town, then come back and tell me all about it.
Here’re the rules:
- Try to write your entry in 10 minutes. This encourages top-of-mind, primal thinking before the ego and judgmental brain kick in. Just set a timer, make your kid count to 600 slowly, whatever. It’s an honor system. And I trust you.
- Aim for 250 words or less.
- Please have fun. Don’t put pressure on yourself. Together, let’s rediscover the simple joy in the writing process.
- Post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.
