In Response to RE: Memoir Prompt January 2013: The Coming Year by Sparkel18
I actually find it more rewarding at the beginning of a new year to look back at the previous year and to recognize that so many things have happened that I could never have planned.
I don't normally think of myself as a spontaneous person and yet I recognize that I am. The "Short Stories to Share" group was one of those. When someone in this group mentioned beginning one something sparked.
It seems to be that way with a lot of creative ideas that I have. I remember a few years ago I saw something on TV about paper mache' and the ideas began to flood my mind. Other times it has been a painting or a new dress design. Another year it was figure skating and for my 50th year I signed up for tap dance class after a friend 15 years my junior mentioned that was something she had always wanted to do.
The list could probably go on and on but the point is that I would have never put any of these on a list from January 1st. Each was sparked by something that occurred that was never expected. I am very excited to discover what wonderful new ideas are in store for me during 2013.
