Delve into your Decades

"I don't think you can be a writer unless you feel things not just for the moment but they live in you."
- Eric Bledsoe
Writers have an opportunity to mine for stories when considering five topics during life's decades. What memories fit into these A categories for you? 

l. An Amazement   2. An Achievement  3. An Amusement  4. An Absurdity  5. An Amiable friend

Begin with a child's eyes and respond from 10 years and under.
Then, move into adolescence.
What memories come to mind from years 20-30?
Delve into the 30-40 era.
From 40-50 will provide additional insights
If you respond from 50 and above, notice how your wisdom reigns!

Creative Write: Write one line responses at first.  Then you can go back to detail the decades.
