Writing Prompt 1/16/13

A recent Facebook status update read: “You could probably never even tell, but I am a closet ______.” Friends of the poster used the comment box to fill in the blank with some delightfully funny and off the wall possibilities for their friend, ranging from music-lover, to professional, to strange behavioral quirks. In this prompt, think about a character who is a “closet_____” and use that as the groundwork to build your character, or use this idea to add more dimension to your character.
