Daily Prompt: Really? You Ask This, Today?!

Oh; sorry. I jumped to conclusions there. When I read the title of today’s Daily Prompt, “All About Me,” my first reaction was panic: How could they know?! How could they have found out that today is my birthday? Yes, dear one, it is true.

Now, by writing each day, I have met some other wonderful writers in the blogntezphere who have once again ignited my desire to publish some fiction writing. I hope this will be the start of more of this:
