We all have secrets—sometimes for good reasons and sometimes just because we’ve never talked about them.
Today’s prompt is all about hidden aspects of yourself: what do not many people know about you?
Maybe it’s a hidden talent (I just found out one of my Team Moxie members plays the clarinet!) or maybe you grew up somewhere else, or perhaps you once dated H from Steps…
As for me: not many people know that I studied Archaeology and Ancient History at university, with a focus on ancient Egypt—and I learned to read and write hieroglyphs. Which is pretty cool.
Use this prompt as a springboard: start with a secret and see where it leads you. Set your time for 5 minutes and write.
And remember, you can keep going after the beeper goes off…
