Okay this is a prompt that could spark a neverending splurge of thoughts.
From me, anyway.
Because I’m curious about everything. Comes with the territory of being a writer, I suspect.
But just off the top of my head, today, I am interested in bears and how to escape their attacks, fidget toys, ADHD, how brains work, why scars form sometimes and not others, what tastebuds actually do, origami, jellyfish (did you know they have no brains or nervous systems and just float around mindlessly it sounds great), why my cat Noodle’s breath smells so bad today, double helixes, Mobius strips, entropy, sadness, and how cheese was discovered.
I have multiple tabs open about these things.
Right, your turn: what are you curious about today? Why?
Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
