#AtoZchallenge: N is for Ninjas

When I was first starting to learn the martial arts, I became deeply interested in Feudal Japan--its history, its culture, and even its language. One thing I remember learning was that ninjas were not friendly (come to think of it, neither were the samurai). They lived in a world where there wasn't much room for friendliness.

Here in America, ninjas are "cool." I never understood the whole assassin-worship thing--are people secretly eager to kill others for a living? I hope not. 

Either way, ninjas are interesting. They're your subject for today, whether you write about them in a historically accurate way or not.

Some people love ‘em, some don’t...but either way, you’re writing about them! You’ve got 1,500 words...WRITE!

Have fun!
