Question of the Day #5 – Writing Prompt

Question of the Day #5 – Do you like who you are as a person?

Question of the Day #4 – Writing Prompt

Question of the Day #4 – If you could sum up your personality in one word, what would it be?

I distinctly remember one thing from that period as a child, and that was that “if your cheeks went red when someone asked you a question, it meant you were lying”… that’s what I remember! Isn’t that the oddest thing? For some reason, it makes me smile because for the longest time growing up, I still thought that was actually true! I mean my Sunday school teacher would never lie, right? Continue reading → Question of the Day #3 – Writing Prompt
