This week’s prompt is inspired by the WHAT MEL DID blog post ‘When I Grow Up.’

When I was at school, I wanted to be an actress, but acting wasn’t a “proper job.” Banking, nursing, teaching – they numbered among the proper jobs and the plan was to leave school clutching my ‘A’ levels en route to teacher training college to read English.

That was the plan.

I outgrew wanting to become an actor and becoming an English teacher was relegated to “one day” as my life took a different turn.

As always, take the prompt in any direction it leads to, letting us know if you write to it so we can publicise your take.

In the meantime, happy writing and happy Sunday. Ed
