This week’s Star Blog topic: “Tell us all about what happened on your last birthday.”
What I did for my birthday this year can be described in one sentence.
I had dinner with my closest friends at a restaurant and they gave me a birthday cake and present.
But we have a 400-word minimum for Star Blog, so I couldn’t stop there. I continued writing about my apathy towards birthdays.
I had actually written about 370 words when an unexpected voice at the back of my mind came hurtling through to the foreground, stunning me with an ugly truth.
I deleted everything I had written, then. In its place was another story that begged to be told.
