Tapping Into Childhood

I grew up in a family who enjoyed Science Fiction and Fantasy. I looked forward to television shows Twilight Zone, Outlimits, Flash Gordon and later Star Trek. For today's prompt, I want you to tap into a childhood interest. If you watched shows like this or other genres, what drew you to them? Make a short list. What did you find interesting? For example, on Flash Gordon the Clay People fascinated me. Most young girls might have been enthralled with Princess Aura or even Flash--but those Clay People stimulated the imagination as they magically emerged from cave walls. Were they a quiet nemesis or possible friend? Good or evil?

Take the time to reflect on what captured your imagination as a child. Jot it down and think about it. As you do, keep a list of ideas generated. These ideas will be sparked from deep within your muse sparked by things you find interesting and magical.
