Today is opposite day. Instead of writing a letter to yourself at a younger age, have your teenage self write a letter to you as an adult. Who are you now? Which road did you end up taking in life? What does your younger self think about the choices you've made? Where did your younger self hope to end up, expect to end up that might be different from where you are? What dreams or goals were changed? When you sit down to write today, write from the viewpoint of a teenager or younger not from your viewpoint looking back. Don't try to pull a lesson from this. Simply be the teen. Say and think what you would have as a teen. Be honest. Do not judge. I think you may just discover a couple of good characters to write about.
