Writing Spark #12

(Picture from HuTui6.com)

Here’s this week’s writing prompt:

Humans have discovered that once you reach the age of 130 years, you start to regenerate and get younger. You just have to make it to that age first.

I love prompts like this, with so much packed in there. You can focus on any one of them to tease out a story (or more than one!).

How did someone make it to 130 years old? What happened to that first person who started to regenerate? How many people reached that point before society – or science – started to believe what was happening? Is it public knowledge, or is it a secret being kept by a select few? How does someone handle growing younger again? What would they do with this second chance at life? Is there another kind of limit on their lifespan – how young will they become?

I find the psychology of the idea interesting, and its societal implications. Where will it take you?
