How Long Have You Known Them? #1LinerWeds

When you ask somebody how long they’ve known so-and-so, sometimes they’ll tell you in years or in years, months, days. Sometimes, they’ll tell you by reference: Oh, we met in the army, or Since before my youngest son was born, or They came into the library back when I was volunteering. Sometimes, they’ll just say, We go way back.

My family?

We went to different schools together.

And people wonder why I’m like I am.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: How long has your main character known the other main/secondary characters in your story?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      My folks are worse, Alicia: They meant to say that because we think it’s funny. Every. Single. Time.
