Orville Wright's Birthday Writing Prompt

"We were lucky enough to grow up in an environment where there was always much encouragement to children to pursue intellectual interests; to investigate whatever aroused curiosity."  -Orville Wright

Today it is Orville Wright's birthday.  He and his brother Wilbur launched the first successful flight of a "flying machine" in 1903.  His quote above is about his childhood and curiosity.

Do you remember making inventions when you were a child?  What did you learn from exploring curiosity?

For your creative writing prompt today, free-write for 10 minutes about your memories of your childhood curiosity.

After your free-write, take the subject and develop a short creative nonfiction piece, or a short story based on the theme, or a poem.
