I've been thinking a lot about age lately. More specifically, I've been thinking about a character's age. I originally had her about 28. I wanted her young but not too young. Old enough to know better, but still capable of youthful mistakes. When talking to a friend though, she thought 28 was too young. She figured 35 was the new 28.
That conversation brought about a landslide of "what ifs" and "do you remembers". We had much conversation and discussion about what age we'd choose to be, if it was a choice. My friend announced if she could go back, she'd want to be 35 again. I'm happy being 46 but if I had to choose a year to re-live it would be 28. So there you have it. We both wanted my character to be the age we wanted. Interesting.
How about you? If you could pick any age to re-live, what would you choose? Or are you happy at your current age?
