Stardust12 has some deep, philosophical questions for you to ponder for today's Writing Prompt. I copied her post from the Stack Back Message Board. Go to the post and take a look at the replies – they are really interesting!

Here are some random Q's for you to answer!

 



1. What do you dream about? I don't just mean in your sleep. I mean daydreams as well!

2. If you could be granted 3 wishes, what would they be?

3. How do you view the world? Do think it's good, bad, or in between?

4. How do you view children your age?

5. What do you think of life in general?

6. What's most important to you?

You don't have to answer all the Q's if you think they're too personal. I just wanna hear some people's opinions on this. . .

I can't wait to hear your opinions too! Please leave your answers in the Comments.

    1. I daydream of becoming a famous author, of starring in the movies of my own books, and meeting a guy that’s worth it, living until we’re 90. P:
    2. WORLD PEACE! hahaa, no but seriously Then would be enough money to live my life good enough. Third would be for evil diseases to be gone—because everyone hates waking up to finding out that someone they love is sick…or you’re sick.
    3. In between, b/c if there’s one thing, there’s always it’s opposite. I don’t think anyone’s born evil but it all has to do with what they were taught and their choices in life.
    4. It’s always nice to find people that try to look at all viewpoints instead of one. (I’m 14)
    5. It’s okay. Life has it’s ups and down. That’s cool. If it never had it’s downs, we’d never realize it’s ups. They complete each other.
    6. My family—as in, my mom, my sis, my bro, and any friend so close to me, I would die inside if I were to lose them.

    1. I dream about candy-land! (I know it’s crazy)
    2. 1: To be able to see my cousins in California everyday (I really miss them!) 2: That I could someday be an author. 3: that I could have a million more wishes!!
    3. Honestly, I think it is in between. We still have war, but need peace!
    4. Well, I think all my friends are great and just like me, but some are not! Plus, I’m more mature than all my friends and I have always been the tallest. So, it is kind of hard to be myself with them.
    5. To me, it is great! We learn new things everyday and get to have new experiences all the time.
    6. My family is the most important thing to me! I love them so much and I wouldn’t know what to do without them.

    1. a better question would be what DONT i dream about! you name it ive dreamed it. yeah sometimes i die heroicly in my dreams and sometimes i have lots of fun. i even dream about books and that im in them. sometimes my dreams are random like once i dreamed milk was chasing me asking for cookies. just last night i dreamed i was margrett gump, sister of forest gump. it was like a biography and i havent even seen the whole forest gump movie and he doesnt even have a sister in it!
    2. well i would have to seriously think about that one…1 i would want to have a magical adventure. 2 have super powers 3 i have no clue lol
    3. it needs some inprovements. im disapointed in it. but then again theres lots of good things about it…
    4. its kind of sad what this world has come to. you dont see kids going outside as much. you can tell who’s popular and who isnt at school the first day your there. lots are immature but hey were 13 we cant help it:) everyone always thinks im in highschool because im tall mature(dont get me wrong i can be immature lol)
    5. i havent reallt figured that out yet…so far so good:)
    6. family, loyalty, friendship, writing, dreaming(my dreams are amazing i wish you could all be thier. thats where i have the most fun)
