Day 22: Children
Okay so I just realized I used Day 22’s question for yesterday (day 21). So I’ll answer Day 21’s question today (day 22). Figures I would mess up something as simple as counting to 30… I blame it on the fact that I’m at work when I write these.

Do any of your characters have children? How well do you write them?
No, and I would probably write them poorly.
I don’t like kids. I really don’t. They’re like little aliens to me. I don’t know how to talk to them, I don’t know how to entertain them… I just give them something to color with and say “have fun, I’ll be playing videogames.” I never had any babysitting job like most teen girls did. I didn’t have any younger siblings… Kids just creep. Me. Out.
Maybe one day I’ll consider the whole “children” thing, both in reality and in fantasy. Not today. Not anytime soon, either.
