Day 20: Are you weird?

Day 20: Are you weird?

Once upon a time, to me, “you’re a weirdo” would have been an insult.

Not now; it’s a badge I wear with pride.

I am a weirdo. There’s lots of stuff about me that is, frankly, a bit weird.

I used to worry about it; now I don’t, because it’s the stuff that makes me me.

The marvellous thing about being a bit weird is that you attract other people who are a bit weird, and those tend to be the most interesting people to have around.

So, are you a weirdo? I feel like if you’re here doing these writing prompts, you must be.

Embrace it.

Enjoy it.

Set a timer for 5 minutes and count the ways in which you are a wonderful weirdo.

Happy writing!
