Exercise #116

Exercise #116: Self Knowledge
Posted 7/15/05

Pick two memories. One bad, one good. If possible, they should be related. (For instance, a bad pet memory and a good pet memory, or the time you fell off that 10-speed bike and the time you won a race with it.)

Write them out. Flesh them with sensory impressions, and let us see them.

If you prefer, you may use a character with this exercise.

Word limit: 600 for each memory
Please use the subject line:

It's funny how hard it is to come up with some memories on the spur of the moment. It's amazing to me, too, how some memories can come waltzing back in my mind with no apparent provocation. I've tried to write such memories down when I can, because once they leave again there's no telling when they'll be back.
